Hello poetry aficionados! Welcome to Poetry Friday! Linda, over at A Word Edgewise, decided to do a 1st line swap this week. We could take one line from her long list of 1st lines and turn it into a poem. In return, we leave a new line for someone else. How fun is that!
I’m going to do this from the seat of my pants as I want to get this posted before heading to bed. The line I grabbed was “I’m obsessed with”. It turned out pretty silly, but fun to write all the same.
Revered and Repulsed
I’m obsessed with:
But never EVER:
This week I have been busy with BookTube-A-Thon, a reading marathon where you try to read as much as possible. I’ve never participated in one before, but it has been fun. So far, I have read 7 books. Not too shabby. Here’s my poem about reading. I hope you enjoy.

Revered, repulsed, read-a-thon — it's a refreshingly “R” kind of day! A reading marathon sounds fun 🙂 I like “your next adventure is just one page away.”
I don't know if it's true, but love the topics included in your “Read-a-Thon” poem! And I'm impressed that you've already responded to a line-well-done!
Your R poem with its obsession made me giggle. And the Read a thon poem has a bit of adventure and fantasy in it. Just my speed. Lovely post.
Wonderful silly poems…..never EVER rattlesnakes for me, either! Thanks for playing. I love on raven's wings….can't wait to see what comes from it.
Thanks! the reading marathon has been fun thus far, but I don't know if I'll reach my goal.
Thank you, Brenda. Thanks for stopping by.
Yeah. I hope someone grabs the raven's wings line. I'd love to see what someone does with it.
What a fun poem–times two! I love the playing around with all those r's.
I love writing acrostics in all their various forms. The hardest thing for kids is to write an acrostic that SAYS something (they usually end up with a list of words.) I'll book mark this one to show them how the key word can go down the middle!
Glad you enjoyed it. I haven't written an acrostic since I was in school, so it was a lot of fun.
What a fun poem students would love it!!
