Poetry Friday

My selection is "Winds on the Wind: bird poems" collected and illustrated by Kate Kiesler, an artist living in Colorado, who shares her fascination with birds.

Kiesler has gathered over twenty poems by many well-known poets in this beautifully illustrated anthology. Verses by Carl Sandburg, Edward Lear, Robert Louis Stevenson, Margaret Wise Brown grace pages illuminated with landscapes and close-ups of birds engaged in a variety of avian activities from flight to nesting. Red-winged blackbirds, wild geese, woodpeckers, barn swallows, a pet parakeet, even a pirate's parrot are sources of inspiration and delight.
