Poem in Your Pocket Day

Poem in your pocket day!
April 18, 2013

So far, Farmstay four has been fantastic! We arrived on Monday April 15th, and had a lot of introduction throughout the whole day. We closed with each of us telling a story from our lives. Everyone had a great time learning more about each other as we sat and told about our own births, to the times we were provoked by our siblings, to injuries and hospital visits. This is how we end each night, with stories.

Today was poem in your pocket day so here is one poem:


Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

Langston Hughes

All we can do is hope that our prairie doesn’t turn into a barren field frozen with snow because its raining really hard right now and there is a chance of some snow. We thought almost all the snow would be gone in a few days but I guess we didn’t hold fast to our dreams. After this snow we will make sure that we do.
