Lemonade and other poems squeezed from a single word is a new poetry book in our school library and it has quickly become one of my favourites. The idea here is so simple and so effective. Take a word and use the letters of that word to write a poem. Here is the author web site and you can see pages from the book here. We have several of his art books in our school library.
Here is a quote from the blurb on the back cover :
"Part anagram, part rebus, part riddle - this brand-new poetic form turns word puzzles into poetry. Using only letters from a singe word, each of the poems in this collection captures a scene from daily life ... Sometimes thoughtful and sometimes funny"
The contents lists all the words - there are 22 of them. Words like lemonade, breakfast, snowflakes, pepperoni, spring and ladybug.
Here are two examples
Here is a review you might enjoy :
You almost want to take your own first and last name after reading it and make poems out of those letters yourself. So thank you, Mr. Raczka, for bringing to light a great new poetic format.
