It's hard to say goodbye to #nationalpoetrymonth. We've been sending our coffee subscribers poems all month and we've loved hearing about the joy it brought them. Major thanks to @poetry_society for their work to place poetry at the crossroads of American life. Our days are better with poems in them. - P.S. Not a subscriber, but interested in trying it out?

Repost @bullandbeebooks Pair with RAINBOW STEW by Cathryn Falwell. . . . WHEN GREEN BECOMES TOMATOES, Poems for All Seasons, by Julie Fogliano and illustrated by Julie Morstad, is a rhythmic and delightful celebration of the big and small changes that come and go with the seasons. Fogliano captures the essence of each season with her playful prose and projects the most vivid imagery with minute details that we're often acquainted with but mostly overlook. We just can't get enough of such beautiful verse. This book and this pair are among our favorites. Here's a gem from the book to help continue our celebration of #nationalpoetrymonth:
