The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
~ by Joyce Kilmer
Not this year, Joyce. It has been the worst Month of March, weather wise, since the year I was born. On the raido a short while ago, we were warned that April will prove very cruel for wildlife. There is hope at the end of the tunnel – or maybe it is a tease – May will bring a Heatwave!!!
Happy Easter To Everyone
The sky is light
The hills are white,
The air is cold
but my heart is bright,
E&G I will see you tonight.
“A true friend is someone who thinks you are a good egg
even though they know you are slightly cracked.”
Happy Easter, Grannymar! We will be celebrating at my aunt’s home.
Yes I am slightly cracked. Was Joyce Kilmer Irish? I memorized his poems when I was younger….Prayer of a Soldier in France, for example. At the least he must have been Catholic. Dianne
Happy Easter to you Grannymar. Kilmer was American and died and was buried in Oise-Aisne American Cemetery and Memorial in France. I memorized a lot of his poems in grammar school too.
gigi – Enjoy the day with your aunt.
Dianne – Joyce Kilmer (1886–1918) was American. I remember my father singing along to this poem:
I THINK that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day, 5
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain. 10
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
Celia – Thank you and many happy returns to you.

You’re a good egg, Grannymar. 😀
Hope yours was a good day. We had a beautiful morning, then thunderstorms in the afternoon. I love thunder boomers, only two of the grand kids got that gene… Take care!
