~*Butterfly- A Poem Book*~ Inspire for Paper Whimsy

I Like the Way You Wear Your Wings.
Show Me Their Colors,
For the Light is Going.
Spread Out Their Edges of Gold,
Before the Sandman Puts Me to Sleep
 And Evening Murmurs By.~
~*Hilda Conkling*~
Poems By a Little Girl
 A Little Poem Book For Inspiration.
But I must Say That 
Hilda Conkling Poetry is Inspiration in itself!
 Growing Up In Northampton Massachusetts 
in the early 1900's, 
Hilda Began Displaying  her talents 
to Her Parents through Songs
At the Age of Four.
Her Mother Diligently
putting Down to Paper
 her Creative Verse. 
And By the age of Merely Ten years old,
 she Published Her First Poetry Book
 Poems By a Little Girl.
Her Works Lend Themselves so well 
to Mixed Media  Art I think.
 April is National Poetry Month
so I thought it would be Fun 
to  Create a Piece centered 
around a Poem.
If You are Interested in Learning how
 to Make one of Your Own,
Have a Look at My New Tutorial 

Hope You all Have a Wonderful Weekend!
