Challenge #37
Spring Pools

by Robert Frost

These pools that, though in forests, still reflect

The total sky almost without defect,

And like the flowers beside them, chill and shiver,

Will like the flowers beside them soon be gone,

And yet not out by any brook or river,

But up by roots to bring dark foliage on.

The trees that have it in their pent-up buds

To darken nature and be summer woods---

Let them think twice before they use their powers

To blot out and drink up and sweep away

These flowery waters and these watery flowers

from snow that melted only yesterday.

Liz's take on our poem...

Now it is your turn... what do you create with these words?

Challenge #36 March

Our newest poem is "March".
We can't wait to see what inspires you from our poem.

Here is what our guest designer created...
Sarah Cooper
I selected 2 lines from the Poem:

March! March! They will hurry

Forth at the wild bugle sound...

Using them under a photo of a painting, at the Canadian War Museum, of the Highland regiment marching to battle. These pictures were all taken an a visit to the museum this past Fall. My parents, husband and I waited to go on a kid-free-day so we could truly take-in all the museum had to offer. We spent almost an entire day strolling, reading and trying to take it all in.

It's a truly humbling experience.
