My Cart 


Appetizing April
Jayne Jaudon Ferrer


I had butterflies for breakfast,
forsythia for lunch,
And birdsong now accompanies
the dinner that I munch.
From scrambled eggs to tuna,
most any mundane fare
becomes downright delicious
when served in spring’s fresh air!

I like most all of the poems you've introduced, posted, briefly explained ;by today, I truly related personally to a fellow poet. This was my favorite read, by far, in this long time of receiving your daily email. Sincerely, Misty Ball
