Goodnight buds.
Goodnight floods.
Goodnight backroads covered with mud.
Goodnight green
bursting in the woods.

Goodnight fog
Goodnight frogs
Goodnight to wet puddle dogs
Goodnight river
floating with logs.

Goodnight seeds
Goodnight weeds
Goodnight new farm baby needs
Goodnight creeks
like raging seas.

Goodnight peas
Goodnight breeze
Goodnight to all the brand new leaves
Goodnight Spring

    I’ve lurked on your blog for several months now. I have to agree with several previous comments. Two Words: Children’s Books. :turtle:

    14.4 inches of rain in 46 days (and still counting as it looks like another gully washer is coming)here on the Mountain. I am so ready to carry some water to the garden instead of watching water surround the garden. The beans and squash, both full of blooms, are begging for more sunshine. The little peppers hanging on the pepper plants-about the size of a quarter-know they can’t grow any bigger when the roots can’t hold on in this muddy ole ground. Welcome Summer, where tomatoes turn a bright red and corn rows grace the sky. Summer where the cucumbers taste so good and the green beans with onions and potatoes are cooking in the kitchen. Bring on the corn on the cob. What a nasty old Mr. Spring you were; goodbye.

    Well, we can wish. We’ve had a terrible, horrible spring. The spring that forgot to come. The gullywasher spring.

    BTW – I hate floods.

    Summer I wonder where it is. We had a bad storm 2 days ago. Now another one this weekend. Roads washed out, bridges washed out. My yard is so soggy you can not walk on some of it. Poor garden is a mud pit. Summer summer where are you??

    You can have Atlanta’s summer, too! But I wouldn’t want to deal with the floods and mud. What a lovely poem!

    Summer has not come to my section of the Pacific Northwest yet. It is cloudy and overcast—rain predicted for tomorrow.

    I agree with Diane—Summer is definitely here on the Gulf Coast. No rain worth anything in two months.

    May this be a Hurricane-free season.

    Now that summer is here, you should be getting dried out soon. I loved your poem!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
