Wednesday’s writing workout, rhyming nonfiction (link to the post) from Teaching Authors blog sparked a thought. Friday is poetry day in the blog world. I wonder if I can do this? What could my nonfiction topic be? How about Slice of Life? Writing in rhyming couplets is not so easy. I am thankful for my Scholastic Rhyming Dictionary to help me through several revisions as I chose words.

Small moments you share

Family and friends, beware!

When a tale’s well told

The words become precious as gold.

This month you discovered a new topic or two,

When March is over, are you through?

Tuesdays call for more

You can do it, writing is no longer a chore!

This month you learned writing is fun,

 Never say, “I’m done.”

Instead say, “I’ve just begun!”

  1. I love your poem. I’m bummed I missed out on the March challenge. Next year I want to give it a try. I’ve enjoyed reading your daily slices. You have to feel a huge sense of accomplishment!

  2. What a great poem! It is unbelievable that March is almost over. Last year I was not good about staying with Tuesdays, but it is my goal this year- I’ve just begun!

  3. Great poem! I am so glad that a friend of mine introduced me to SOL and that I took a chance on that first post. You are right, my writing has just begun.

  4. Great poem. My favorite line is “When a tale’s well told/The words become precious as gold.” It sounds like a saying from long ago. What a great way to capture this month’s writing challenge.
