Poetry Friday is hosted today by Teacher Dance.
For Poetry Friday: ""
Poetry and the natural world -- a lovely pairing, particularly in this instance. Fourteen verses from the talented Yolen offer her affectionate perspective on the life of a wide variety of birds from the stately eagle to the familiar chickadee.
Haiku for a Cool Kingfisher
Hey, girl, fish lover,
Sitting on the dead gray tree,
Love the blue Mohawk.
The subject of each poem is beautifully illustrated by Stemple's eye-catching color photography.
A sidebar offering a short collection of relevant facts accompanies every entry to round out this delightful book.
