Hi Susan,Just stopping by to say hello - I'm treating myself to a few moments of computer time, which are very few and far between lately (my mom is staying with us for awhile). I hope you are enjoying summer in your neck of the woods!
What a delight!! Great use of words. I found the poet:http://www.hungermtn.org/darn/So nice to see Alison!!
Alison! Nice to see you out and about - I hope you haven't given up on your blog entirely - perhaps after the summer?The poem is fun - I am not entirely sure that is the poet as I thought she was British, but whether she is or not, the woman on your link has such a come have tea with me kind of face, doesn't she?
You know, I thought she must be British because of 'tea' and 'snails' and 'jiggery-pokery' but this woman was the only picture I could come up with. I searched a bit more and found a PC who wrote books but not poems. The poem is anthologized in both a UK and US book.
This is what Wikipedia came up with.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pauline_ClarkeI found the poem in a book with collection of poems.I am not entirely sure if the poem is by the American Pauline Clarke or by the British writer.Sorry.
That was fun! Thanks Susan! Love the pics!
