Blackout Poetry - Power of Reading

This time for swap-bot, I created a blackout poem from a newspaper article. I chose the newspaper Kaiserslautern American and the article "Read Across America shows children power of reading" on page 16, published on March 1, 2013.



Power of Reading
By Candace Shultz

Read to be a cat.
Read to believe.
Read a crazy book
Or read history.
Get excited.
Read to express 
Or read to rest.
For fun or learning,
Carry a book and read.


Here's the original newspaper article.
