We have snow, stars, wind, and ice poem-song matches today! Heidi contributes her "Independence Day Graffiti," which she matched, rather naturally, with the Star-Spangled Banner.
Independence Day Graffiti
by Heidi Mordhorst
Oh say can you see
by the winter’s pale light
where I scratched my initials
in the fresh-poured cement
I got off of my bike
while the cars whistled by
found a sharp sturdy stick
squatted by the new sidewalk
And my letters were clear
and my flag wasn’t square
all my stars and my stripes
seemed to ripple in air
Oh say does my snow-spangled banner yet wave?
Yes my mark is still there since the day I was brave!
I matched Julie Larios' poem about a runaway kite, "No Strings Attached," with "Born to Fly" by Sara Evans ("I will soar away like the blackbird/I will blow in the wind like a seed").
I matched Donna's "Heart of Snow" with O.K. Go's "This Too Shall Pass" because you know, just like spring sun, morning comes again.
Addendum: The weather report in sum is this quote and this song.
The Poetry Friday round-up is at Reading to the Core. Thanks, Catherine!
