National Poetry Month #24


On the front porch
Chairs sit still;

The table will receive
Summer drinks;

They wait, arranged,
Strange and polite.

On the back porch
Garden tools spill;

An empty basket
Leans to one side;

The watering can
Rusts among friends.

-Valerie Worth


  1. What a delight to visit your blog! Thanks for leaving me a comment so I could stop by! Browsing through your entries, I feel like I've met a kindred spirit =) Cats, dogs, kids (teaching), writing, poetry...all the quotes scattered've challenged me to write more... possibly even every day. We'll see...

  2. I felt the same way when I visited your blog. I hope I can keep doing a post a day. I have been able to do it during those " busy teaching times" we know so well!


I always enjoy reading comments!
