Edges by Marilyn Singer – Poetry Friday

We just received A Stick Is An Excellent Thing: Poems Celebrating Outdoor Play by Marilyn Singer, illustrated by LeUyen Pham. I love the message that this book of poems sends, AKA, GO OUT AND PLAY! I picked a poem that reminded me of my daughter, and what I believe she’s thinking when she is involved in an activity that makes me a wee it nervous. 😀

Edges

I like to walk the edges —

the curbs, the rims, the little ledges.

I am careful not to tilt,

to stumble, slump, or wilt.

I pay attention to my feet

so that every step is neat.

I am dancing in the air,

but I never leave the street.

A Stick Is An Excellent Thing
