Michelle Kogan is rolling out the green carpet
with this week's round-up of poetic goodness and
welcoming Margaret Simon's latest book, Bayou Song.
Be sure to stop by for this delightful interview with
Margaret and to read several poems and
see the illustrations from the book.
After the first day of summer and the longest day of the year, it seems like we should honor summer with a poem. The poem I'm sharing today is new to me, but these lines resonated with me and seemed made to match the photo I took this past week of a luscious shade of green I noticed while hiking with friends.
" . . . The green will never
again be so green, . . . "
You can read the entire poem, "More Than Enough" by Marge Piercy at the Poetry Foundation along with other summer poems.
