April is National Poetry Month. Every year, my dear friend, and Poet Extraordinaire, Mary Lee Hahn, chooses a theme and writes a poem every day. She blogs and posts at two different places- YEAR OF READING and her fabulous new poetry blog, POETREPOSITORY.
This year's theme is PO-EMotions. Mary Lee promises, "I will write a poem a day that either evokes an emotion, or uses an emotion word in the title or body of the poem. Her list of emotions is here. I'm joining her, at least some days.
Today's emotion is cheerfulness.
A RECIPE FOR CHEERFULNESS
One fluttery purple iris
Two blades of green grass
Tulips- three each of palest pink, red, and yellow
Four drops of daffodil juice
A dash of lilac zest
Stir together in large bowl
Set oven to full sunshine,
bake until ingredients reach desired consistency
Best when served in a large glass
on patio or porch swing.
