Poetry Challenge #1

I meant to do my work today -
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand -
So what could I do but laugh and go?
~ Richard Le Gallienne

Illustrated by Esmé, almost 4yo:

That's how I feel every spring, distracted by the lovely weather and sights outside, never in the mood for spring cleaning. Esmé's drawing is very beautiful, very spring-like!

I love her illustration! So cute! It's like a little peek into what's going on inside her head.
