I also want to say thanks to Mary Lee Hahn at A Year of Reading, and her wonderful April posts/poems. I have had the pleasure of being inspired by the media shared at her site often this month, and am thankful for it. Mary Lee's work has helped me publish a few posts since I've tried to write every April day. Please visit!
Don't forget to look to the right to see whose turn it is to add a line to the 2nd Annual Progressive Poem, the idea created by Irene Latham at Live Your Poem. Then head over to see how it's going! We're almost at the end!
A giveaway to note! Visit the Teaching Authors website for a terrific giveaway.

I've been thinking a lot about this little book that I've kept for a long time. I have current addresses on my computer now, but for close family and friends, their information still is entered in this address book, and carried in my handbag. I've also entered dates of births and deaths. In my memory, the book holds story upon story. I only need to look at a page of names and changes of addresses, records. I recently recorded another goodbye in this book, hence my poem.
Dear Little Book
at the names
and recorded -
all are dear
this small book
