"Imitation is not just the sincerest form of flattery - it's the sincerest
form of learning."— George Bernard Shaw
Welcome to Day 6 of FEET IN THE CREEK.
For each day I have chosen a favorite poem, a favorite poet, or a favorite friend. I will look at the work, decide what draws me to it, what makes it resonate for me, and then write my own poem about the creek with those techniques in mind. These are first drafts, so nothing will be especially polished, but they will be starting points for revision after the month is done. Feel free to follow along or join in.
Today's poet is my dear friend, Irene Latham, who truly does live her poems. Check out Irene's website here. Read reviews of her recent books of poetry for children here. Stop by her blog, Live Your Poem, to follow Irene's poetry project this month: ARTSPEAK! 2016: "Gardener's Companion."
