I've been watching the TCK series over at Djibouti Jones with interest. She's featured many voices, and today she has mine. Head on over to read my piece about Dave Pollock, a man who has been so important in my life and the lives of many other TCKs and their parents: Tribute to a Pioneer.

- Many ways to say good night.
- Fireworks at a pier on the Fourth of July
- spell it with red wheels and yellow spokes.
- They fizz in the air, touch the water and quit.
- Rockets make a trajectory of gold-and-blue
- and then go out.
- Railroad trains at night spell with a smokestack mushrooming a white pillar.
- Steamboats turn a curve in the Mississippi crying a baritone that crosses lowland cottonfields to razorback hill.
- It is easy to spell good night.
- Many ways to spell good night.
- Carl Sandburg
|This poem was featured this week on YourDailyPoem.com. It seemed appropriate for these relaxed, lazy summer days and nights here in the US. It is wonderful to have a slower pace, no early morning meetings, and time with family and friends. Even though our Fourth of July plans were rained out, I love this atmospheric, quintessentially American poem. Hope you're enjoying your summer! |
