First poetry book of 2023. I try to read a poem a day. Ideally with organic tea in bed and because I‘m on school holidays I can do just that. With no alarm to wake me up. The painting in the back ground is at my mother‘s place as you walk up the stairs to the landing. It‘s of a shearing shed. Both her father and brother were shearers. Good ones so I‘ve heard. I am enjoying these romantic poems so far. I scored them at an op shop a week ago for $3.

IuliaC I try to read poetry too, at least from time to time 😊 1mo

No list is complete without Pablo Neruda. Accessible even to those who don‘t read poetry, his work is beautiful.

from Editor‘s Note:

“For this edition, we have drawn from 39 of the 74 poems, presenting a total of 70 questions. These questions represent parts of poems, with poem LVI being the only full poem in the book, but even in this case, not all of the poem‘s couplets appear on the same page. The 70 questions were arranged into more or less thematic groups, informed by the relationship between humans and the natural world, mind, and geography.”

JazzFeathers What incredible illustrations! 😍 9mo

“How do the oranges
On an orange tree share the sun?

Who wakes up the sun when it sleeps
upon its blazing bed?

Don‘t you see that apple blossoms bloom
In order to die as apples?”

Nute Very exciting! I can‘t wait to see the illustrations in this book. (edited) 9mo
Lesliereads @EvieBee @batsy It really IS a beautiful edition!💫 I am tempted to splurge on another copy so I have one to share with students on classroom visits, and one that stays home. 💝 9mo
Lesliereads @merelybookish 😍Exactly what my eyeballs were doing when I happened upon it in the bookstore! 9mo
Lesliereads @Nute It‘s going to be a challenge not to share every page! Some pages even fold out with more visual surprises. 9mo
Nute I think that you have influenced one of the selections in my next book buying spree, Leslie!🙂 9mo
Lesliereads @Nute Your welcome, Kimberley! 💕 9mo

National Poetry Month: Day 29! 📖❤

Out of the Neruda poems that I've read, this has always been my favorite. In fact I've even used it in a couple different fan fiction stories that I've written in the past! Don't even ask. It's just as cringey as it sounds! 🙊🙈😂
