Spring 2021 – A Colorful Poem

Writer's Treasure Chest

Once again the sun is shining

its beams are warming up the air.

The warmth and nature touches plants

Sprouting is the winter’s heir.

**

Trees and flowers are growing buds

blossoms develop in all colors and sizes

the air is filled with insects and bird songs

nature is back growing and diversity arises.

**

We find sunshine yellow, orange, pink and red,

water in springs are gargling cheerfully in blue.

Leaves in forests are showing wonderful green

all the colors together are a breathtaking view.

**

Purple and turquoise, aqua and hot pink

bright yellow, burgundy, navy and brown

the flowers are opening, blossoms are seen

the growing trees are proudly carrying their crown.

**

Spring is the time when nature awakens

It’s picking up growth, it’s humming with love

life is back, showing the eternal life circle

thanks to the courtesy of our Creator above.

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."
