April Showers Bring…Poetry!

1 Comment

Where’s my head?  I have been cruising along the month of April without writing about National Poetry Month.  I will make every endeavor to catch up – there’s so much to write about.

Here’s a poem from one of my favorite children’s poetry books, Today at the Bluebird Cafe, by Deborah Ruddell:

The Eagle

She rides the sky like she owns the sun,

on a sea of air and light –

surfing, skimming, rising high,

then sweeping low and tight.

She swoops to catch a perfect wave,

her wings held straight and true.

You lift your chin and hold your breath

and wish you could do it too.
