Montana Meandering

Vacation week for me and hubs. The beauty of this place is astounding. 

Glacier Poem
by Jacob

You can think you are big, strong, powerful. Really though?
As you look up the mountains,
That sense of pride falls away.

Maybe the screech of the eagle nips at your ears, 

Read the rest here.

Today's round up is at A Year of Reading


  1. Gorgeous photo and the perfect poem to go with it! Enjoy beautiful Montana!!

  2. Wonderful word pictures the kids create. I'm especially fond of Sariah's: "Dancing prancing scoobity dee doo./ Throwing a mit, having a fit. Jumping off the wall having a ball./ Spring."

  3. Those kids know their state, and it seems they're celebrating it, too. Beautiful words. Happy travels, too.

  4. Thanks for sharing the work of these taented kids. I think I like the idea of 'Rabbit-Walking ' the best.

  5. Hope you're enjoying your birthday vacation! It looks amazing. I hope Jacob is still writing. He is a fresh, thoughtful poet.

  6. Must visit Montana! Jacob's poem and your photo have inspired me even more. =)

  7. "River River clear as can be" --- yes, a gorgeous place and gorgeous words to go with it. Thank you, Doraine! xo

  8. I love the e.e. cummings style skips and missing bits in the lines of this piece....with so much meaning and mature thought. What cool piece for a kid to make!
