Planting Poems

For budding poets, I am planting some new and old poems on this page, some of them inspired by the creatures that appear in A Word's a Bird, my bilingual iPad app, illustrated in glorious watercolor by Jeanne de Sainte Marie. The poems on this page are not in the app, which has pictures and sounds that appeal to even the youngest children. Touch-activated glossaries unlock a world of metaphors.

I would love to plant some poems in your school. I am comfortable with all age groups. Contact me.
Even small children can make the ducks sing in the app A Word's a Bird (links at top of page).
Touch the flowers of May in the app to open them and see the bees at work.
