World Poetry Day: Guest Poem: Written by the Lovely Zoe Marriott

In an attempt to showcase poetry in the school library today, I asked Zoe if she would share a poem with us. She is a fantastic advocate of the beauty of poetry, even making up quick haiku poems on twitter. The following poem is stunning - ENJOY.


I have a dream of the summer whisper of wind high up amongst green boughs

And darts of gold piercing patterns of leaf shadow

I have a dream of the soft movement of water

And ripples with dark underbellies curling on river stones

And I feel the brush of warm air against my cheek

Velvety and fluttering like a bird’s wing

That disappears with a sweet, aching throb of song

And takes the dream and the summer with it

And leaves me, eyes welling

In darkness…

Thanks to Zoe for sharing that beautiful poem with us.

Now go check out the awesomeness that is Zoe's website here where you can find information on all the ways you can interact with this fabulous person as well as seeing the beautiful covers and trailers for her books.
