You can walk all around this great big world
or climb up mountains to tread on high.
But never, in a ga-zillion steps,
can you walk out from under
the big blue

Kelly Bills writes poetry for children and the kid inside us all. While attending the MTSU Writer's Loft Program, she stumbled upon concrete/visual poetry and has been working to build a collection of her own. Her most recent project is adapting famous classic verse into a concrete format for children– a visual translation of sorts to reintroduce the classics with a twist! Her website is www.kellybills.com.
Thank you, Kelly, for sharing your wonderful poem with us today! Do you have a sky poem or pic? I would love to feature it here. Email me at irene at irenelatham dot com.
Very fun poem, and observation! Would be fun to talk about this with younger children, wouldn't it?ReplyDelete
