NaPoWriMo 2016 Day 12


My All Time FAVORITE Book


Dear Mr. Henshaw
Emily’s Runaway Imagination
A Girl from Yamhill
Ramona the Pest

It’s DEAR day (drop everything and read) Happy Birthday! Beverly Cleary 100 years spry today!

NaPoWriMo Prompt – Today, I challenge you to write your own index poem. You could start with found language from an actual index, or you could invent an index, somewhat in the style of this poem by Thomas Brendler. Happy writing!

OK maybe not exactly an index poem, but I took out my copy of Dear Mr. Henshaw turned to the back and saw this:


Beverly Cleary Books













a listing of all her books. As luck would have it, I could arrange some of the titles into an acrostic for dear. So there is my faux index poem.
