Happy Earth Day!

On this fine sunny Earth Day, I give you a tribute to our favorite material at play time: sticks.  The poem comes from a book titled, A Stick is an Excellent Thing: Poems Celebrating Outdoor Play.

A Stick is an Excellent Thing

A stick is an excellent thing.
If you find the perfect one,
It’s a scepter for a king.
A stick is an excellent thing.

It’s a magic wand. It’s yours to fling,
To strum a fence, to draw the sun.
A stick is an excellent thing
if you find the perfect one.
