Poetry and stickies...

My mom loved poetry~
Here are two books of hers that I am lucky enough to cherish now~
How I love that she marked books with stickies and torn papers as now I know some of her favorites...

AFTERNOON ON A HILL by Edna St Vincent Millay
I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.

I will look at cliffs and clouds
With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass,
And the grass rise.

And when lights begin to show
Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
And then start down!

The books are so beautiful...
