      April is National Poetry Month so I'm going to post one poem each day during this month. The first one is from my book Ordinary Things: Poems From a Walk in Early Spring. This is a timely poem because here in New Hampshire the days and nights are still pretty cold. It's supposed to be spring--according to the calendar--but on most days it sure doesn't feel that way.


                                 the calendar says its early spring
                                 but the wind pretends not to know

                                 it reaches with bone-cold fingers
                                 inside my coat to rattle my ribs

                                 it swoops down into my mouth
                                 and stuns my tongue, steals my voice

                                 it whispers secrets past my ear a
                                 blur of words too fast too low

                                 from Ordinary Things: Poems From a Walk in Early Spring                                         


  1. ORDINARY THINGS is still my absolute favorite spring poetry book. I read "Daffodils" to my class today. And used it on my blog last Friday when I hosted Poetry Friday. Can't wait to see what else you post this spring!

  2. My favorite book and poem hands down. I love using this poem for personification.

  3. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
