Блог - Книжный червячок


Март - со стихотворением Джона Апдайка (John Updike) из детского календарного цикла, с иллюстрациями Трины Ш. Хайман (Trina Schart Hyman), обладательницы Кальдекотта 1999г.

The sun is nervous
As a kite
That can't quite keep
It's own string tight.

Some days are fair
And some are raw.
The timid earth
Decides to thaw.

Shy budlets peep
From twigs on trees,
And robins join
The chickadees.

Pale crocuses
Poke through the ground
Like noses come
To sniff around.

The mud smells happy
On our shoes.
We still wear mittens
Which we lose.
