National Poetry Month: Educator Barnes Reads – Life at My Failing School

I like a challenge.  Some people knit or doodle in their spare time, but I enjoying writing poetry.  Not only do I enjoy writing free verse poems, but I also like writing in specific poetic forms such as the villanelle. The poem I wrote, “A Villanelle – Life in My Failing School” was published in Whirlwind Magazine in August 2016.

In the video, I explain the components of the villanelle and I read my villanelle.

I have included a villanelle template below just in case you would like to write one in your spare time too.
