Stuck on the Frigidaire


Last week, Nancy and I went to Lander for an abridged performance of Romeo and Juliet, presented by a group of students from the University of Wyoming. While we waited for the group to warm up, we strolled through the public library and found a clever display prepared for National Poetry Month.

Nancy checks out the display board
(note that it looks a Frigidaire)
Here are some of the clever poems that we found stuck on the Frigidaire:



The next two were by far the most creative, and if I wasn't retired, it would be a clever way to encourage teenagers to experiment with poetry.


Adding a bit of "art" to the poetry - very clever!

  4. You had me with the first one! I am good at spelling and that's why I tell DH often that I should have been something other than an accountant. A spelling teacher maybe, but not an accountant!!

  6. Fun post! I loved those poems on the Frigidaire! I know if I was still in the classroom, I'd be using the ideas posted too, especially taking a page from an old book. That was so cleverly done!

  8. How cute and creative! Funny, I can write song lyrics, but struggle with just plain old poetry. I have to have the meter of the music to get the words flowing!

  9. I love that idea! It is a fun way to recycle old pages. I actually recently found out that Frigidaire is still around, they still make refrigerators as well as air conditioners. The name is great of course.

  10. Those are very clever indeed. I wonder if the person had a hard time spelling so poorly? g
