Here are some family friendly Poetry Month events in our area this week.
Fly a Poem month at the Parkland Community Library. Submit your favorite poem - original or by another author - and we will post it on a kite shape and display it in the library. Fill the library with kites and poems.
Fancy Nancy fans can visit the Whitehall Borders store this Saturday for a poetry party. Click here for details.
Here's a poem to get the poetic juices flowing. (And to remind you to visit the Parkland Community Library Wednesday, April 14th, at 7 pm for a program by the Lehigh Valley Zoo.)
The Porcupine by Karla Kuskin
A porcupine looks somewhat silly /
He also is extremely quilly. /
And if he shoots a quill at you, /
Run fast /
Or you'll be quilly too. /
I would not want a porcupine /
To be my loving Valentine.
