Engaging Methuen Readers

Books + Poetry + Rainy Day = Book Spine Poetry!

Leave a comment

Poetry springs eternal, pandemic  be darned!  The month of April can mean many things to different people, but to me, April Showers and the National Poetry Month designation stand out.  So, on a recent rainy day stuck at home, I ransacked my personal library collection to create poetry from book spine titles.   Let these following examples be a springboard for your own book spine poems. Gather the family round and get creative.   See how many poems you can create by throwing in cookbooks, graphic novels, manuals and children’s books to the usual fiction and non-fiction mix.

Take a photo of your book spine poems, include the text, and email it to us at contactcirc@nevinslibrary.org.
