A Child’s Calendar by John Updike

Monday Sparks — Writing Prompts: What’s Your Favorite Poem?

picture-book-w21983812_1280April is National Poetry Month here in the U.S., so my theme is poetry and figurative language.

What’s your favorite poem? I have several, but I can’t reproduce them here. That would be mostly likely a copyright violation. So I will list titles and authors below.



Writing Tip — Just For Fun

blizzardw-1025002_1280This poem was inspired by John Updike’s poem about January in A Child’s Calendar. Although the poem may sound depressing, I like January. I enjoy winter and my birthday as well as the birthdays of all my kids are in this month.

How does January make you feel?
