Poetry Friday is hosted today by Robyn Hood Black.
For Poetry Friday -- "Insectlopedia: poems and paintings" by Douglas Florian.
An early morning walk in my garden inspired this selection. Florian has assembled a diverse collection of 21 insects to highlight: caterpillar, dragonfly, daddy longlegs, and cricket are found here. Some, like the butterfly will delight and others -- the mosquitoes and ticks may give you the shivers as Florian points out what we love or loath with light-hearted verses in an enticing variety of forms.
The Daddy Longlegs
O DaddyDaddy O
How'd you getThose legs to grow
So very longAnd lean in size?
The watercolor illustrations continue the silliness and round out a book full of fun.
