This will be the perfect bookmarked place to go for a perfect collection of poems!

I must say, Ms.Fineman, you are the perfect hostess (or is that postess?)...

Thank you so much for the bevy of beautiful, inspiring posts this month, Kelly. I loved how you interlinked them by subject.

The interlinking part was both the challenge and the thing that enabled me to keep going. I'm glad you've enjoyed them.

In the name of the Bee-
And of the Butterfly-
And of the Breeze-Amen!

You are quite welcome!

A great collection for reading on the train.

I confess that I thought of you when I started the month, figuring that if printed out and folded together, the posts might make a nice little "book" for the train (much lighter than the Bloom, for sure).

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Amazing Kelly Fineman!
This is a entire college semester in 30 days. Brava.

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, The Amazing Kelly Fineman!
Some college classes probably don't cover quite that many poems, actually. Alas, poetry is usually slighted.

Thanks for your kind words, Anna!
