Summer ended officially on September 22, 2021. As Chad and Jeremy sang in their 1964 Summer Song, "All good things must end someday-Autumn leaves must fall". The seasons cycle through the year.

I turn my atTENtion now to Bridget Magee, the designer and editor of a new anthology for wee ones, 10*10 Poetry Anthology, Celebrating 10 in 10 Different Ways, who is also hosting the Poetry Friday Roundup. I am so excited that the poem I wrote based on interactions with my toddler granddaughter appears in Bridget's new anthology.
Once again you've given us so many wonderful moments to enjoy in your gallery. And how delightful for your granddaughter, to know as she grows up that you captured a moment with her in poetry, and that the poem was published in an anthology. Congratulations!ReplyDelete
Oh, I want to go back to summer! It was so warm and fun and sunny and less stressful. Waaaaaah. I do enjoy Fall, as well. I should simply enjoy the gallery and know that the summer held a lot of beauty and it will be back again. I look forward to your Autumn gallery!ReplyDelete

It is a special one to keep for your granddaughter!ReplyDelete
I love how you combine the art and poetry and share it with us all. Lovely and scenes I might never imagine or see. I am happy a poem with your granddaughter is in Bridge's TEN anthology. How delightful. I will get to read it soon and I know I will feel our kinship even more. Long Island, Syracuse in reverse, times at NCTE and NYSEC and the grands. So glad to see you here often. You are always generous with your time and friendship.ReplyDelete
