Coming out of hiding

Sorry I haven't been blogging.
I've been busy.
It's the end of the year, DN1 is graduating this week, I have deadlines at work and for a board I chair at church - life's been hectic.
This, however, is worth coming out of hiding.
Britain has named their first-ever female poet laureate.
This is a big deal, folks!
Finally, after 400 years, they recognize that women write poetry - good poetry!
Her name is Carol Ann Duffy and you can check out her bibliography here.
In honor of Carol Ann Duffy, I'll provide you with a nursery rhyme that described my hair yesterday:

There Was a Little Girl,
Who Had a Little Curl

There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good,
She was very, very good,
But when she was bad, she was horrid.

Where the curl came from on my head, I have no idea.
It was there, though.
I'll try to be better today.

What? No pictures? Awww. C'mon? That was something we definitely wanted to see. Teehee.

Good luck with graduation.

Thank you for mentioning Carol Ann Duffy's appointment as Britain's poet laureate. I will put her on a pedestal next to the one on which Wyslawa Szymborska stands. My dear mother always recited "There was a little girl..." Your post brought back sweet memories. Thank you. Mary Shooshan, KOALA Caddie
