Can you Haiku?

Kids enter Tenley Library’s haiku contest

In celebration of National Poetry Month, Tenley-Friendship Library is hosting a haiku Contest for children. Haiku is a poetry form that consists of three lines with syllables arranged in a 5-7-5 pattern. Kids ages 5-12 years old, we welcome your submissions from April 1 through April 21. So that everyone can appreciate your creations, we will display your haiku in the Children’s room and on our web site. Five lucky poets and their poems will be chosen randomly to win a DC Public Library water bottle.
 
So come on in to enter and also pick up a pocket poem, a Shel Silverstein Poetry Workshop Kit, or a favorite book of poetry.
 
Happy National Poetry month.
