April is poetry month and we have been enjoying reading poetry. I found many poetry books at our local library, and included them at the top of this blog. The one that I am sharing today is published by Barefoot Books. It is a book full of poems about time called First Morning, compiled by Nikki Siegen-Smith and beautifully illustrated by Giovanni Manna.
The poem with the illustration of the boy on the beach above is what I am sharing with you today:
Pebbles by John Cunliffe
We collect days,
Like a boy collecting pebbles
On the beach.
Suddenly his pockets are heavy.
Suddenly, we are old.
