Thanks to Robyn at Life on the Deckle Edge for hosting Poetry Friday. I’m sure it’s going to be fabulous.

Something Linda likes to do in summer is creating cards. I love the detail and intricacy of them through using paper scraps and illustrations from books headed to the book graveyard.
And inside the yellow card were more poems, this time using Carl Sandburg as a mentor:
These will be used to mentor me.
