NPM 2019 Day 6: Paint Chip Poetry–Spring Celebration

56542052_340056463308408_6240535477623980032_n.jpgOnce again, I made a variation to my ongoing Paint Chip Poetry game. This time I pointed to a random page in the alphabetized index in the back of the pack of chips, and took the three names my finger covered. They were: Jubilee, Julep, and June day.

Spring Celebration

Come sing a song
of jubilee
embrace June days
and julep breeze
Change winter scenes
to memories
Breathe deeply into
spring’s reprise

  1. I’m jealous! I just have a couple of brochures with paint colors from Home Depot, so there’s no index. Did you have to pay for this cool deck? It’s not June but I’ve been breathing a lot more deeply lately. This is terrific, Molly!

      I found this in the cupboard when I switched up to teach fourth grade. I suspect the previous teacher had played around with color poetry, but I really have no idea why it was there. Lucky for me!
