“Path of the open, path of the valley,
Path of the steep climb, path of the downward slope,
Return my mother to me.
Children are drowsing about to sleep,
Darkness is coming and there is no firewood,
And I have not found the lantern:
Return my mother to me.”

excerpt from “Footpath” by a Stella Ngatho (Kenya).

#poetrymatters March 16: sharp

The Dentist and the Crocodile by Roald Dahl, found in the tagged.

Two of my favorite poets are Shel Silverstein and Roald Dahl. They, along with Mother Goose, introduced little me to poetry back in the day. #poetryforallages
