Jane Yolen left this poem in the comments.I wrote a poem about a bower bird, but got stuck. Then I got caught up thinking about sloths. Here's what I'm working on right now.
VelvetElaine Magliaro at Wild Rose Reader shares a poem entitled Toucan Talk.
"Live like the velvet mole. . ." Elinor Wylie
Mole in his hole,
The soft brown of old rubbed velvet,
Wrinkles up dirt through the night.
Does he daydream of grass
Or the roots of grass?
Does he listen to beetles passing?
Does he recognize in his blind way
The pink ribbony worms?
Or are his thoughts
As dark, as deep
As velvet tunnels,
As velvet sleep?
It's not too late if you still want to play. Leave me a note about your poem and I'll add it to the list.
