ArtSpeak: FOUR SEASONS "Snow Song" poem

 Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure to visit Karen Edmisten for Roundup. I'm away from my desk, having some birthday adventures... and possibly a new First to add to my 50 Firsts!

In case you missed it, here's my homemade-by-me everything-for-free book trailer for D-39: A ROBODOG'S JOURNEY! This was my first time to make a book trailer. I hope you like it! And I hope it makes you want to read the book. :)

My poem today uses rhyme and musical language to talk about snow. (Just 3 more weeks of winter poems. I am SO READY for spring!) Thank you so much for reading. 

Snow Song

when adagio
of snow

the meadow



to flush

from pianissimo

- Irene Latham


  1. I can't wait for D-39, Irene, sounds like a great adventure. The trailer is terrific; good for you for creating! And we just had a big snow so I love your snow poem, the music included! Birds are everywhere today, but it was very quiet during the storm! Happy Birthday! Hope you celebrate all the weekend!

  2. Why yes, the trailer does make me want to read the book. Hooray! I'm glad you are this stage of promo. Great job on the trailer. The music of, so, so pretty.

  3. Wonderful trailer-leaves you in suspense… and wanting your book! I'm ready for spring too, though I do like all the soft lyrical sounds in your snow poem. Happy Birthday Weekend Irene!

  4. I love the music of snow, the adagio. And how the partridges flush hope. Such music.

  5. Three cheers for the trailer! And for another Fabulous First! And for "pianissimo/crop-rows" (do my iris and poppy sprouts count?)!

  6. The trailer is fabulous! I shared it with my class this week and they were riveted! We're all so excited to read it. Your "Snow Song" is wonderful. I love how the partridges "flush hope" and how you weave music in so deftly.

  7. I love the music woven into your poem.

  8. Your trailer is terrific! Well done. And "Snow Song" is lyrical and lovely. It almost makes me want more snow, but ... no. :) I, too, am so ready for spring. :)

  9. Love the beautifully unhurried, melodic rhyme in your poem, reads like falling snow. Congrats on the new book, too - the trailer is intriguing!
