Brookland Area Writers and Artists Present:
Wednesday, April 8, 2009 - The Brookland Area Writers and Artists* presentsBrookland Poetry Series # 62: Bloom.
Poems of flowering, pollination, opening up, getting started, burgeoning, efflorescing, fructifying, waxing, freshness, the opening of flowers in general, opening to higher perfection, things that are stately and plump, things that go Bloom! and a mass of wrought iron from the Catalan forge or from the puddling furnace, deprived of its dross, and shaped usually in the form of an oblong block by shingling. Now is the time when limbs unfold,When all our trademark trees explode, And crowds return in droves to gawk, To choke both city street and walk, So thick with tourists you can't get by 'em. So let's, with poetry, enjoy this time, Not all about flowers, not all about Spring. A few poems will be (thankfully) on other things.
