Hello Poetry Peeps,
|The Rabbit Hole. College of Natural Health & Homeopathy, 4 June 2020, https://cnhh.ac.nz/the-rabbit-hole/.
I have a story for you. It's nonfiction. But, you might hear hints of Laura Numeroff's If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.
When a poet walks the track,
she'll listen to her favorite podcasts
when she listens to her podcasts, Shortwave is at the top of the list
When she hears eco-poet in the interview she knows she'll learn more about the poet
Effie Lee Newsome, a Harlem Renassaince Poet, that primarily wrote for Black children
from nature as a place of equity and justice
Our poet will google Effie Lee Newsome and find poems at
The American Academy of Poets
She also finds stars (on the padlet)
Because she finds stars, she'll share them all with Poetry Friday friends, like you!
Then the poet will pull on her shoes to walk the track...
