Sylvia writes a poem about spring arriving and hangs it on a birch tree. The next morning her poem is gone and another one is in its place. She assumes the tree wrote poetry back to her. In school Sylvia can only think about her poem and gets really excited when the teacher teaches them about haiku poetry. She begins thinking about rhymes and sees poetry everywhere. She writes more poetry on the sidewalk, leaves another one on the tree, and then Walt a classmate shows up at the tree. I'm going to leave you here and hope you get the book to discover the ending for yourself.
Laura Shovan is hosting Poetry Friday this week.
