    December (Nancy Byrd Turner Poems)

    The house of December was all aglow,  Each room was jolly and red;  There were bulgy stockings ranged in a row,  And holly hung overhead.  A silver star hung fair and far,  A silver bell rang clear;  And some Christmas children came out and cried,  “Come in … Continue reading



    August (Nancy Byrd Turner Poems)

    Oh, such a funny August house–  It really was like a zoo,  For animals roamed in all the rooms  (Even a kangaroo);  Such sociable, smiling, friendly beasts!  As soon as the travelers came,  They hurried out with extended paws,  Announcing, each, his name. “Why, how in the … Continue reading

    October (Nancy Byrd Turner Poems)

    It was a queer October place–  No house, you’d say, at all!  A wide brown wood with leaves for a floor,  And timbers straight and tall.  The little creatures that lived in there–  Fairies and furry things–  Scurried away when the children came,  With bashful scamperings. As … Continue reading



    September (Nancy Byrd Turner Poems)

    Very familiar September seemed:  A flag-pole stood in the yard,  And the little path that led from the road  Was trampled bare and hard.  A bell hung high in the little tower,  And when the door swung wide  They saw a young woman with pen in … Continue reading
