It snowed again this week barely a week after the nor'easter, and since weather follows a roughly seven-day cycle, I wonder what we'll have next week?
To celebrate this wonderful awful season called winter, today I've chosen a book from the children's room, Winter Eyes poems and painting by Douglas Florian [J 811.54 FLO].
Within its pages are a nice variety of poems that cover every aspect of the season. There are poems on such diverse topics as ice fishing, wool, cabin fever, and animals' burrows. Lucky for us, Florian does not restrict himself to poems about snow and ice. Here's my favorite, "Winter Time":
Winter TimeBoy, if you live in New Hampshire, you know just how long that time really is!
It speeds along.
A brief sweet song.
Thin as a dime.
