Poetry and Pictures - Weather

English Impressionist painter Alfred Sisley (1839-1899) painted outside. He tried to capture realistically how sunlight fell on the landscape. He was a friend to Monet and Renoir and lived for most of his life in France. In this painting of Saint-Mammes, France there are just a few small cumulus clouds in the sky.


They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But just what words?

We'd like to invite you to submit your own poem about this month's featured Weather image. Be as creative and expressive as you can! And check back next month to write another wonderful poem about a weather image.

by Sally Plumb, age 67, England

with your speckled throat,
do you sing clear, silent notes
to winging busy, busy bees,
"come partake my honey, please"?
