I found this chalk board poem on a street corner near my local library the other morning. The title alone took my fancy, a board attached to a tree with a poem on it, what else but Poetree? Stopping to read this brightened my day. Does your town or city have fun things like this?

You're a teacher? How wonderful! Age group? I retired last year from teaching as I had so many other things I wanted to do. Your kids could make poetrees of their own for the classroom.

What fun, I've never seen anything like that. I wonder if the poem changes daily?

There are two boards, this and one on the opposite corner. I think they're changed weekly, by whom I have no idea.

First time I've seen something like that too. Usually I see menus instead of poem written on street chalk boards. Then again there's the chalk art for birthday parties too.

Alas my neighborhood is devoid of whimsey. I did see a busker outside Trader Joe's singing away with his guitar. Yet the traffic drowned him out. I hope he finds a better spot!

No, it doesn't. I live in a small village in a very rural area. But I'm sure there will soon be something like this in our largest nearby city, Portland. I don't get out there anymore, but they're pretty progressive.

This "poetree" is great, I love it. I have to propose this idea.
