April is all about poetry – Vol. 1, no. 18





Alliteration in April assails our aural affinity for Allesa’s poetry.  Whoa!  Made it indeed!  Although this writer cannot say the old rhyme, “I’m a poet, and don’t know it!”  Because the above alliterative example sounds exactly like rhythmical rhyme.  If this writer does not stop immediately, she will fall off her chair laughing.  It is interesting that submissions for this volume of poetry, honoring the National Poetry Month have arrived from distant points from the United Kingdom and now British Columbia, Canada.  But so far, there have not been any submissions from poets located in Chicago, which is where the initial invitation was sent.  Interesting!  So now for no. 18 in Vol. 1 presented on the 18th day of April.  Coincidence?


‘Awww, summer!’


Awww, summer!

The beautiful smell of daffodils

lilies and the faint sounds of

(drummers…ahhh summer) the marching band

I can hardly wait to put my feet in the sand

I can see the sun in the sky

as the band marches over the lawn

As a flock of birds flew by and settled on the hawn

The cheers from the crowd was carried by the wind

over the hillberry farm

While the Creator was being praised for the work

of His hands which is warm

The summer was winding down

at the setting of the new dawn
