Last Word of the Month for 2021

Hi everyone,

Two girls reciting “It’s a Lollity Popity Day”

Believe it or not, we’ve come to the final poetry exercise of the year. You’ve done a splendid job throughout 2021 and I’ve enjoyed your poems and the many ways in which you’ve found stories in each of our eleven words: yes, replay, time, quarter, now, on, poem, weeds, light, change, and dirt. Jane Yolen, SU HUTCHENS, and SUSAN BICKEL have written a poem each month. Who else has? At the end of each month I add the new word and delete all the previous month’s poems and comments so there’s no way I can go back to see who else has blessed us with eleven new poems this year.

Time now to choose December’s word. Let’s go with EYES and see what we get. Go!
