Poetry Teatime: Polka-bats and Octopus Slacks

Poetry Teatime

We had another lovely Poetry Tea Time on Tuesday this week. We are trying to keep a regular day for it, but we do enjoy reading aloud and having tea more than just one day a week!

I had found a fun looking poetry book at the thrift store a few weeks ago. The art and the poems appealed to Celeste right away and she asked for more non sense poetry. I put a few titles on hold at our local library.

Poetry Teatime

Polka-bats and Octopus Slacks is a collection of 14 stories by Calef Brown. Celeste’s favourite was The Lonely Surfer:

“In a dry and dusty desert town
the lonely surfer hangs around.
Perched upon a prickly pear,
he usually wears a worried frown.

People ask the surfer dude,
“Why so far from the ocean blue?”
“Because I’m so afraid of sharks,”
he says, “and water too!”
