Stay Hopeful, Stay Inspired in Stratford 

 Stratford Library is preserving the power of poetry.

 In the spirit of National Poetry Month, Stratford Library is posting an inspirational poem each week to their Facebook page. The videos will feature a librarian reading the poems aloud.

Check out this week’s poem, “Daisy Time,” read by a librarian, Ms. Tess.

Listen along and stay inspired!

 Daisy Time

By Marjorie Pickthall 

See, the grass is full of stars,

Fallen in their brightness;

Hearts they have of shining gold,

Rays of shining whiteness.


Buttercups have honeyed hearts,

Bees they love the clover,

But I love the daisies' dance

All the meadow over.


Blow, O blow, you happy winds,

Singing summer's praises,

Up the field and down the field

A-dancing with the daisies.
