Their Current Favorites

I already mentioned Sierra’s current favorite poem:

So here is a second favorite:

And Brooklyn’s favorite:
We read these every day (along with many more) and they laugh and laugh.

And this isn’t my favorite poem, but one I found in my journal today and am loving again:

Little Girl Skipping
~Richard Armour

I say, and may be thought absurd,
A little girl is partly bird.

You say, she has no wing or feather?
I say, behold the dancing leather
of shoes upon her skipping feet.
How seldom sole and sidewalk meet.

You say, she is earthly bound,
Unable to get off the ground?
I only said- recall the word-
A little girl is partly bird.

And if she cannot soar the skies,
she has the urge and tries and tries.
