Outside My Window

Dear Poetry Friends,

For the foreseeable future, I will crosspost on Fridays, here and at Sharing Our Notebooks, where I have been sharing - and will continue to share - a daily notebooking talk. (Today is Day 5.) Instead of writing about my poem in a blog post as is usual on Fridays, I will include that day's video talk from Sharing Our Notebooks.

If you are new to visiting The Poem Farm, I welcome you to poke around. There are all kinds of things to try.

Fridays are for both of my online homes.

Take walks. Be good to yourself. I care about you.


ps - I had a book come out this week. It is titled WRITE! WRITE! WRITE!, and it was edited by the fabulous Rebecca Davis, illustrated by the amazing Ryan O'Rourke, and published by Boyds Mills Kane. You can see the trailer and learn more about it HERE if you wish. Check out my sidebar for an adorable butterfly pencil template made by Ryan.

Michelle is hosting this week's Poetry Friday roundup at Michelle Kogan with some bright poems about spring. We invite everybody to join in each Friday as we share poems, poem books, poetry ideas, and friendship. Check out my left sidebar to learn where to find this poetry goodness each week of the year.

Please share a comment below if you wish.


  1. Thanks for the good you share digitally. I love the history of the stumps!

  2. Amy, you make simple look easy, when I know very well it is not!

  3. Thank you for sharing you gift. I love the videos, and I can imagine children everywhere following along. xo

  4. I have your book, have peeked inside, but not read it all. Congratulations, Amy, & it is wonderful that you're making those videos! They will be so loved! Stay well during this hard time!

  5. What a delightful and inspiring post Amy. I'm hooked on looking out windows, there's always something new to see and find. Your "two fat stumps" remind me of "Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree." Thanks for inviting us into your writing lair, and do thank Betsy too!

  9. Congratulations on your new book and thank you for all your goodness in the poetry world and world world. :)

  10. Thanks for the notebooking videos! Just hearing your voice calms me down!

  11. Congratulations on your new book--and thanks for the wonderful video.
