The Home of all the Poems

I met Matilda by the Poet Tree this morning.  Matilda is 8, and she wants to be a writer.  She followed me back to the Yurt, her family and little sister in tow, and set off with a little FINDS book and a borrowed pencil.  We met again an hour later, and she showed me her poems.   Lots of them.

A Canna Lily is like a tall traffic light
on Stop.

An Aeonium is an alien plant

from outer space

not leaving a trace

of how it got here.  Did a Martian

plant it?
