Thanks for hosting this week! I've been thinking about wood this morning (which is, I suppose, more interesting when you heat with it than when you don't), and I found a delightful poem about it: Wood, by Reginald Gibbons. I posted about it here.

So fun to see someone from Colorado hosting. I just posted a poem about dads. I didn't write it, but it sure feels like it was my dad the poet was talking about.
