She Said–A Spring Poem

 As the only poety I currently have time to read is children’s poety, I have been surprised how much I enjoy the simpleness, the easy meter, and the humor of it. For those of you south of me, your Daffodils may be gone, but we had two inches of snow last Monday, and are THRILLED to have some Daffodils.   Enjoy this spring poem by A. A. Milne

DAFFODOWNDILLY

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,

She wore her greenest gown;

She turned to the south wind

And curtsied up and down.

She turned to the sunlight

And shook her yellow head,

And whispered to her neighbor;

“Winter is dead.”

      So there is more to AAMilne than Pooh! And if you are ever looking for a little book of fun kid stuff….” A great big ugly man came up and tied his horse to me” Yep. That is the title. My kids still remember some of those lines. … BTW – you look lovely! Blessings, Kathy April 27
