Here is another poem inspired by Mary Lee Hahn at A Year of Reading, and her wonderful April posts/poems. Not only that, but she is giving some lessons in attribution from images from the Wikimedia Commons. Please visit!
Will you come to my castle fair?
I am so awfully lonely there.
‘Tis sitting tall at the top of a hill
and surrounding land is bereft and still.
No forest primeval’s near this hold;
no witches or dragons to shiver you cold.
Just me in the upper turrets of stone
wanting, oh wanting to call you home.
