Poetry Friday: Forest is and was and will be

April 18th, 2019 (06:00 pm)

Current Mood: sleepy
Current Song: Something's Coming from West Side Story

Forest is and was and will be
Root and roof and all between
Pan-fruit feed me, nid-bough hold me,
Peace and Joy be ever green

- from the novel Below the Root by Zilpha Keatley Snyder

HOPE was the word that came to my mind, too!

I just read Jone's post about Georgia Heard's new book about animal sounds and now you're sharing the love of a forest alive with music, too. It's lovely, that 'Peace and Joy be ever green'. Thanks!

loved serids

I loved Snyder's Below the Root series when I was young, but I had forgotten the poetry in it. Thanks for sharing.
