You’re a poet and didn’t know it – It’s National Poetry Month

It is still National Poetry Month…so here is my chosen poem.

Humming Birds by Betty Sage

I think it is a funny thing

That some birds whistle, others sing.

The Warbler warbles in his throat,

The Sparrow only knows one note,

But he is better off than some,

For Humming Birds can only hum.

I guess you know by now, They’re Back! So get your feeders and sugar water ready.

Every now and then (sounds like a good book title) I like to do what I call a doubles column, well…”Pam’s Picks” for Fiction: “Heartbeat Away” by Michael Palmer, this books is at the crossroads of politics and medicine in this shocking thriller. His son Daniel Palmer has his debut novel, “Delirious.” This is a mind bending novel of paranoia, deception and revenge. Doubles!

For all of you who have asked…we do have the 2011 Edition: “Calorie, Fat, and Carb Counter.” Plus sodium and alcohol, too. But you will need to ask for it at the Circulations desk.

Happy Reading!
