Happy Friday! I hope everyone has some good books planned for the weekend.
My chosen poem this week is by the Afro-Guyanese playwright, poet and children’s writer John Agard.
A Date with Spring Got a date with spring Got to look my best. Of all the trees I'll be the smartest dressed. Perfumed breeze behind me ear. Pollen accessories all in place. Raindrop moisturizer for me face. Sunlight tints to spruce up the hair. What's the good of being a tree if you can't flaunt your beauty? Winter, I was naked Exposed as can be. Me wardrobe took off with the wind. Life was a frosty slumber. Now, spring, here I come. Can't wait to slip in to me little green number. John Agard
