A Poem A Day

4


The kids & I popped into a local cheap shop today to pick up a couple of organisational things, which they didn't have, & stopped at a giant pile of books. We spent ages pilfering through the pile, & lots of time laughing at some of the funny titles. We turned to walk away & found our way blocked so I turned back to peek at the pile of grown-up books when I spotted this lovely title!

Read Me: A Poem For Every Day Of The Year. It's got some very lovely selections in it & it's perpetual! We cracked it open & read today's poem which was by Robert Louis Stevenson. Then we resisted the urge to read ahead or behind & save them for each day of the year, all though both boys begged to know what tomorrow's poem is called.

I spent the morning looking through books at two thrift stores. It's my favourite thing to do.
By the way.. I think it's Robert Louis Stevenson...
