Poetry Friday

A Summer Morning
by Rachel Field

I saw dawn creep across the sky,
And all the gulls go flying by.
I saw the sea put on its dress
Of blue mid-summer loveliness,
And heard the trees begin to stir
Green arms of pine and juniper.
I heard the wind call out and say:
"Get up, my dear, it is to-day!"


Bookshelves of Doom sponsors a new Haiku contest and reports on the entries from last week
By Sun And Candlelight highlights William Blake
Fuse #8 Productions reviews Blackbeard, the Pirate King -- poems about pirates
Jen Robinson shares AA Milne's Knights and Ladies
Scholar's Blog has poems about the joy of reading books (and none of the poems say, the Joy is from being able to say "i read a classic, ask me how")
A Year Of Reading reviews Moving Day

Drop a line in the comments if you have something for this Friday; I'll update later today.
