I've been in a fairy tale kind of mood and so am reading books and poetry appropriate to the topic. Today I'm sharing something terrific from The Poets' Grimm: 20th Century Poems from Grimm's Fairy Tales.
How to Change a Frog Into a PrinceThe round up this week is hosted by the inimitable Julie Larios at The Drift Record. Do stop by and take in all the wonderful poems being shared. Before you go, be sure to check out this week's poetry stretch results. Happy poetry Friday, all!
