Poetry Prompt - through Sunday, February 8, 2009


Welcome to SIMPLY SNICKERS.


Soda Jerk

By Norman Rockwell

1953


This week, for Sunday, February 8th, our SIMPLY SNICKERS poetry prompt includes these key words:


still

stop

stray


This week, we celebrate the birthday of American painter and illustrator Norman Rockwell, who was born on February 3, 1894. Norman Rockwell is perhaps best remembered for creating illustrated covers for The Saturday Evening Post.


To honor this artist, SIMPLY SNICKERS offers samples of his artwork to accompany this week’s prompt.
