I am Appalachia. In my veins
Runs fierce mountain pride; the hill-fed streams
Of passion; and, stranger, you don’t know me!
~Muriel Miller Dressler
Bill Alexander, Appalachian Hippie Poet, today:
* Read the rest of Muriel Miller Dressler's Appalachia here.
* A bibliography of Appalachian poetry for children
P.S. Y'all do know how to pronounce "Appalachian"? It's like throwing an apple at cha.
P.P.S. Bill Alexander's face reminds me of Robin Williams, if R.W. had a lot more hair.
P.P.P.S. Today is the last day to sign up for the Winter Poetry Swap...
Diane has the Poetry Friday round-up at Random Noodling.
