"Haiku!" said my friend: free print-ready poster and activity sheet

I'm gradually adding free print-ready posters and activity sheets for young poets on my POETRY FOR YOUNG READERS page (where you can also find info about my own poetry background).

First up: I've turned my "Haiku!" said my friend poem into a free, print-ready poster which prints on a sheet of 8.5" x 11" paper.
