spring poetry


Another Sarah
for Christopher Smart

When winter was half over
God sent three angels to the apple tree
Who said to her
“Be glad, you little rack
Of empty sticks,
Because you have been chosen.

The rest of this poem is here.

Ann Porter b. 1911

I love your choices, especially the first one. I've never read it before but I think it's destined for my "favorite spring poems" list.

P.S. I found your blog through a comment you posted on Amy Loves Books.
