Poetry Friday: Butterfly Eyes and other Secrets of the Meadow

We're getting an early start on our Poetry Friday! This is a wonderful new book of poetry riddles about the hidden world of the meadow. By award-winning author Joyce Sidman, this gorgeous book with scratchboard illustrations by Beth Krommes encourages readers and listeners to notice grasshoppers, rabbits, deer, spittlebugs, trees, hawks and other inhabitants of a meadow ecosystem. Here is a part of one of the riddle poems; can you guess what it is?

Our time will come again
say the patient ones.
Now is meadow
but not for long.

Say the patient ones:
sunlight dazzles,
but not for long.
seedlings grow amongst the grass.

Find out the answer by reserving this book here.
