POETRY FRIDAY IS HERE!
Poetry Friday is here!
Spring is probably my favorite season. And daffodils are one of my favorite parts of that season. I haven't seen too many daffodils yet this year, but the crocuses are up, so I know the daffodils are not far behind.
Every spring, I celebrate the advent of spring with one of my all-time favorite poems, "Daffodils," by Ralph Fletcher. "Daffodils" first appeared in Ralph's book, ORDINARY THINGS: POEMS FROM A WALK IN EARLY SPRING. The book is almost twenty years old, so it's definitely an oldie but a goodie. If you don't already own the book, it's still available on Amazon.
They put on
a little show
simply by being
faded brown barn.

I'm trying to learn to use Mr. Linky, but I'm having a few technical difficulties. For now, I guess I am just going to go old school, so leave your comments and I will round them up tomorrow.
