April is National Poetry Month

I can't believe how much there's going on in the Blogosphere/Kidlitosphere this month for kids and poetry.  Too much.  Check it all out HERE  Almost overwhelming!

A different poet adds to the poem each day.  It's pretty cool.  I'll copy it here:

A squall of hawk wings stirs the sky
A hummingbird holds and then hies
If I could fly, I'd choose to be
Sailing through a forest of poet-trees

A cast of crabs engraves the sand
Delighting a child's outstretched hand
If I could breathe under the sea
I'd dive, I'd dip, I'd dance with glee

A clump of crocuses crave the sun
Kites soar while joyful dogs run
I sing to spring to budding green
to all of life - seen and unseen

Wee whispers drift from cloud to ear
and finally reach one divining ear
who looks up from her perch and beams
West Wind is dreaming May, it seems

To a pied pocket the Zephyr returns
blowing soft words the seer discerns
from earthbound voyage to dreamy night,
The time is now.  I give  you flight!

Yet I fear I am no kite or bird -
I lift! The world below me blurred
by tears of joy.  I spiral high
I hum, I dive, I dip, I hive!

Behold!  Spring is but a dance away!
I grab my pen, then capture this day.
