Hello! Welcome to our blog on this lovely Poetry Friday! Thanks for stopping by!
As a special treat today, we have an original poem by poet, teacher, and professional book author Georgia Heard titled Ars Poetica. Enjoy and leave your links below!
by Georgia Heard
In September, small poems lay
still and silent inside your hearts.
If you listened carefully,
you might have heard
the quivering of wings.
In January, from the corner
of your eye, you could have spied
a flutter or two –
poems slowly unfolding,
delicate silken wings.
In April, poems began to appear everywhere!
Rainbow wings beating, flapping,
hovering over desks, hanging
from the ceiling, tips of noses, tops of heads.
It was difficult to get any work done!
Now, your butterfly poems
fly free. You fold the memory
into your hearts. Poems —
small butterflies raised, watched,
let loose into the world.
