People’s poetry

La Pie

Elle envie la pie à coté
Du cottage jaune,
Parce que là,
On trouve la neige d'hiver,
Le ciel, le soleil, et la pais
D'une palette par Monet.

She envies the magpie beside
The yellow cottage,
Because there
One finds winter snow
The sky, the sun, and the peace
Of a Monet pallet.

-- Carol Gillman

Carol Gillman is a reference librarian at Lincoln Library, Springfield's Public Library. Her poem is inspired by Claude Monet's painting, "The Magpie."
