Where Does Poetry Fit? A Common Core Dilemma Part 2

There are no specific CCS mentions of poetry in primary standards for reading or writing
however, there are specific references to stanzas and poetic language.  In addition,
approximately 15% of the NYS add-on part of the CCSS includes poetry, as in the sample

So, where does poetry fit?  Everywhere! 
               Phonemic Awareness
           Close Reading 
           Central Message
           Partnered with Mentor Texts  
           Grammar  (parts of speech)
           Responding to Reading
           Oral Presentations
