A Poem for Jill

We met some good friends today in NJ for a cookout at a state park. My friend, Jill, said that she wasn't loving the poetry portion of my blog. She's a reader, so I asked if really there wasn't a favorite poem she had from somewhere. She looked up at the tall pine trees all around us and said:

"Birdie, Birdie in the sky
Why'd you do that in my eye?"

Which just goes to show that there's a poem for everything.

WHAT!!!Did she read my Everyday Poetry??? Perhaps your Musical Monday trivia has blocked reader access to my poetic works of art. How fleeting art thou fame? It is just as Oprah warned me..."They build you up just to tear you down." - ee conrad

Jamie says there is an additional line to that poem.

"aren't you glad cows don't fly?"

Who knew?

We had a great time today! Thanks for making time for us - we enjoyed our visit/
