  1. You have a fitting ending to all of today's Poetry Friday, Mary Lee! I just saw that Penguin is issuing the poem alone in a hardback copy, by April!

  6. We share a positive to start our PLCs each week at school. This Thursday I said, "I have two words for my positive: Amanda Gorman." Wow!

  8. I'm encouraged to see all of the conversations she has kicked off about poetry, youth, performance, who belongs on the national stage. Thanks for being part of this week's link-up, Mary Lee!
