Poetry Friday


Daffodowndilly by A. A. Milne

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead.”

We’re big Winne-the-Pooh fans here. If you don’t also know A.A. Milne as a poet, you should check out his collections for kids; Now We are Six and When We Were Very Young. Both my boys enjoyed reading the poems over and over again even at a very early age.  Last year in first grade, John memorized two Milne poems, Daffodowndilly and The End. These poems are definite classics that stand the test of time.
