Poetry Month Finishes With A Flurry of Poetry

On Tuesday afternoon, on the final day of National Poetry Month, Jennifer Swift's 8th graders came to the library to create their own edge poems.  Several students created more than one poem, and Jennifer participated as well.  In all, 25 poems were 'written' during the visit.  Two winners and two runners up were chosen from the group.  Thanks to all students and teachers who contributed to a wonderful Month of Poetry.
