Poetry Friday is hosted today at The Miss RumphiusEffect.
My selection is "Winter Eyes - poems and paintings" by Douglas Florian.
I've shared this book before but it seemed appropriate and it is one of my favorites. Florian celebrates the season with eight winter-themed poems. "What I Love About Winter" begins with -- Frozen lakes/Hot pancakes/Lots of snow/Hot cocoa. And he acknowledges that it isn't all fun with a companion verse, "What I Hate About Winter" -- Frozen toes/Running nose/Sloppy slush/Holiday crush...
Water color illustrations capture the essence of the verses.
