Still thinking of Poetry Month
Poem in Your Pocket is coming up on April 17th. That's tomorrow!
Here's one for the young people in your life. I found it on the Poem in Your Pocket site.
She rides the sky like she owns the sun,
on a sea of air and light -
surfing, skimming, rising high,
then sweeping low and tight.
She swoops to catch a perfect wave,
her wings held straight and true.
You lift your chin and hold your breath
and wish you could do it too.
