BookMentors Seeks Poems That Endorse Books of Poetry

we are celebrating #NationalPoetryMonth with daily poems mimicking the style of our favorite poetry books! Post your own poem about your favorite book of poetry or like one of the poems that has already been posted. BookMentors will donate the book featured in the post that gets the most “likes.” Get creative!

Here’s one piece written by Lucy Curran:

“You may think it’s silly;
You may think it’s trite.
But Green Eggs and Ham can be a delight.

You’ll go on an epic adventure, a quest!
You’re in good hands with this book, maybe even the best!

So give it a try, just as Sam-I-Am might,
And read a few pages of Dr. Seuss tonight.”
