Poetry Friday: A Riddle from the Table


Happy National Macaroni & Cheese Day!! My friend Tabatha is hosting the Poetry Friday festivities at The Opposite of Indifference. I don’t know about you, but I am not indifferent about pasta! I’m looking forward to a fun poetry feast!

  1. Bravo! And, I love how you included the answer to your riddle in the last line. Super good riddle poem. You’d better use this with students next year! They will love it…and hopefully, use it as a mentor text.

    1. The very reliable source = Wikipedia. Apparently Thomas Jefferson is credited with bringing the delicacy from Europe! The line went in a separate text box (I use Canva) and then I rotated it. Tabatha thought it up!

    1. I hear there are entire mac n cheese restaurants . . . not anywhere near me, but somewhere out there in the greater U.S. 🙂

  2. That would be a good mentor text for other foods and research…maybe set it to music too. I love the combination of history and poetry! Score on the upside down answer!

  3. Well done! It flows so nicely. Elicits a guess. And makes you turn your head upside down! What more could you ask from a poem?
