Featured Poet: Me (Sort Of)

Tonight I want to share with you a Book Spine Poem I composed for my school’s library contest. Mine is not an entry, but just a sample to show the students what the idea of a Book Spine Poem is. I made this one from some of the random discarded novels from the library that I’d moved into my classroom for the kids to read if they wanted.


Book Spine Poem



Here’s the text of the poem, which comes from the titles on the spines of the books involved.

the cavalier in the yellow doublet
the guy not taken
the fencing master

shopaholic ties the knot
with a tangled skein

Jane and the man of the cloth
shopaholic and baby
