I Found An Endless Land
Its promise flowering in lush fields
Purple mountains etching their majesty in pure air
Flat plains that absorbed the warm summer rains
Canyons that swallowed the imagination
Freedom like water on the tongues of thirsting men
Freedom as sweet as young love
From We Are America: A Tribute From The Heart by Walter Dean Myers and Illustrated by Christopher Myers
This week I will be featuring two poems from two different collections that focus on science. One title is about the Earth and the other about the different creatures in a specific habitat, a meadow. Please check out these titles and others at your local library.
third one from the sun,
Earth’s blue and white majesty
dwarfs her lunar child
From Earth Verse: Haiku From The Ground Up by Sally M. Walker and Illustrated by William Grill

Who is he?
From Butterfly Eyes and Other Secrets Of The Meadow by Joyce Sidman and Illustrated by Beth Krommes
“A Bird Came Down The Walk”
A bird came down the walk
He did not know I saw;
He bit an angleworm in halves
And ate the fellow, raw.
And then he drank a dew
From a convenient grass,
And then hopped sidewise to the wall
To let a beetle pass.
He glanced with rapid eyes
That hurried all abroad,
They looked like frightened beads, I thought;
He stirred his velvet head
Like one in danger; cautious,
I offered him a crumb,
And he unrolled his feathers
And rowed him softer home
Than oars divide the ocean,
Too silver for a seam,
Or butterflies, off banks of noon,
Leap, plashless, as they swim.

“April Rain Song”
Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.
The rain makes still pools on the side walk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night—
And I love the rain.
Written by Langston Hughes and illustrated by Brian Pinkney from The Dream Keeper and Other Poems
