~ Joan Bransfield Graham

This is such a fun poem, on so many levels!  I love that it's a concrete poem -- a poem that makes a picture. I love all of the rhymes Graham uses, especially the words she made up, like "dripsickle".  And I love how reading the poem makes me wish that I had a popsicle of my own, right now!
