Wednesday Spring Song

"A Poem should not mean, but be."  Archibald Macleish

        Last Sunday, I wrote nearly these same words, about Mary Lee Hahn at A Year of Readingand her wonderful April posts/poems, written using media from the Creative Commons site and teaching about proper attribution at the same time.  It's been full of beautiful words written, along with learning and inspiration.  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!

Here is my poem written in response to a link shared of forest sounds.


Back Home

Rasp and chatter
Carolina Wren
calls me back
to my forest friends

teakettle, teakettle
cheer cheer cheer
cardinal flashing
spring is here

alive with chicka-dee
leafy-damp smell
walking in my forest
all is well
