Poetry Postcard: "Sadness is black & blue"

From the Silver Star Elementary Poetry Postcard Project, Vancouver, WA, April 2016

Ciara has done a phenomenal job of capturing sadness with all her senses,
don't you think?  Such a talented 5th grader!

Thanks to Jone Rush MacCulloch for celebrating National Poetry Month with this wonderful postcard project, and to the students at Silver Star Elementary in Vancouver, WA for sharing their hearts.

The postcard I received last year, about a preposterous panda, can be found HERE
The one I received in 2014, about a fantastic frog, can be found HERE.


  1. Sadness that a fifth grader knows so much about sadness.

  2. Such a pretty design around such stark wintry words. That's childhood right there, as I remember it.
