Irene Latham's WILD Blogiversary Roundup: "To the Waters and the Wild"

I'm happy to be participating in Irene Latham's WILD Ten Year Blogiversary Roundup!

On November 9, 2015 Irene is celebrating ten years of blogging at Live Your Poem!

Congratulations, Irene!

Each year Irene chooses a word that she looks for and uses in her writing and her work. Irene's 2015 word is WILD. 

To celebrate Irene’s wild theme, I chose an excerpt from the poem The Stolen Child by William Butler Yeats. "Come away, O human child! To the waters and the wild..." These lines from the faerie point of view are captivating and haunting - thank goodness we don't have to worry about faeries coaxing children away to the wild in real life. Although this poem is set in Yeats's home country of Ireland, I decided to go a little wild and pair these lines with my own photo of a late spring sunset on the water near my Florida home. If you'd like to read the entire poem, you can find it at

Thank you, Irene, for inviting me to participate in your celebration. If you'd like to visit Irene's blog and see how many of her other blogging friends are wildly cheering, click on Irene's beautiful wild roundup poster above.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy.
