What a better way to play with poetry than to be a participant in Irene Latham’s Annual Progressive Poetry event.
Our poem is for children. And Matt started us off by using some lines from music (and there is a challenge to continued the found lines). Kat and Kimberly continued the found lines.
Both days one and two are from the soundtrack of my preteen and teen years.
It prompted me to look up lyrics from other bands of my youth, in particular The Doors and Led Zeppelin (I had very eclectic music taste).
The Progressive Poem thus far…
Endless summer; I can see for miles…
Fun, fun, fun – and the whole world smiles
No time for school- just time to play
we swim the laughin’ sea each andDCwe every day
L1 The Who, ‘I Can See for Miles’ / The Beach Boys, ‘Endles Summer’
L2 The Beach Boys, ‘Fun, Fun, Fun’ / Dean Martin, ‘When You’re Smiling’
L3 The Jamies, ‘Summertime, Summertime’
L4 The Doors ‘Summer’s Almost Gone’/ Led Zeppelin ‘Good Times, Bad Times’
Linda at Teacher Dance will be swimming up soon for the next line.
