Skills Practice

It’s been a long time since my last post, friends.  Thanks for still being here!

I have a guest author today, my oldest son, aged 11.  He’d decided to practice some of the skills he’d learned reading The Boys Book:  How to Be The Best At Everything, by Dominique Enright and Guy MacDonald.  Lo and behold they have a section on writing poetry.

Here’s his two poem cycle in the nature genre or pastoral tradition:



Blows, swirls,

Will it



Calm, quiet,
