Friday Poetry: March and Now is the Time by Elizabeth Coatsworth

I couldn't decide, so today is a double-header Poetry Friday.


March

A blue day,
a blue jay,
and a good beginning.

One crow,
melting snow --
spring's winning!

~ Elizabeth Coatsworth




Now is the Time

Now is the time
when robins call,
the fretful horse
stamps in the stall,
the cock claps wings
in orchards bare,
under the hedge
crouches the hare.

Now is the time
spring fires burn,
the air is sweet
with smouldering fern,
and through the quiet
hours of night
the gold-eyed frogs
croak with delight.

~ Elizabeth Coatsworth

Here I chatter about books, parenting, election 2008, recipes, teaching college writing, and the adventures of getting settled in with our two freshly (Fall 06) adopted school-age children from Russia. This blog is chapter two; chapter one is posted at Jamie & Suzanne go to Russia. I live in the City of Subdued Excitement, Cascadia, Land of the Free.

I am the wife of a man I call My Gift from a Generous God. I am mama to two lovely children, Dandy and Chickadee that became ours in September 2006 in a court-room in Siberia. I am the daughter of two people whom I love and admire. One of them, my dad, is a new (Dec 06) paraplegic.

In my previous life (B.C. - before children), I was a college English teacher, specializing in composition and ESL composition.
