Carol Wilcox at Carol's Corner is hosting
this week's round-up of poetic goodness.
She welcomes spring with Ralph Fletcher's poem, "Daffodils."
It started last Tuesday when we were playing outside. Jack took a deep breath, looked up, and exhaled, "Blue sky!"
On Wednesday, we stepped onto the deck and I pointed out the white blossoms from the neighbor's tree. Thursday morning when he went outside to play with his mom, he shared his and grandma's latest backyard find, "White blossoms!"
Yesterday, we looked around to see what might be new in our backyard view. And that's when we spied them. I lifted Jack up for a closer look, "Green leaves." Tiny green leaves just beginning to unfurl.
As we sat at lunch yesterday, with a view to the backyard, we chanted our poem and found the final line.
