I’d like to bring my readers more poetry from women. Small sample of words for motivation and inspiration. With fall coming up soon, I am in a nature-y mood. So today’s poem is from a woman known for her Bohemian lifestyle.
“Afternoon on a Hill”
By Edna St. Vincent Millay
I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
I will look at cliffs and clouds
With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass,
And the grass rise.
And when lights begin to show
Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
And then start down!
