This is an update, a wonderful poem by Kath Hamper. Sorry for not including this earlier Kath. This is compiled early in the morning and although I had seen it, I don’t get many email submissions – so it slipped by. Thanks so much for this piece.

Welcome, wondering wanderers!

Woven willows wave, wreathed with willowherb.

Watering, weeding, willing to work
Wheelbarrows writhing with wriggly worms.
Wetland with willows, winter-white world
Whooper swan winging, waterweeds furled.
Whimsical woodpile, woodlouse and wren,
Whisker of woodmouse, water-boatmen.

Waterproofs, wellingtons, windblown and wild,
Windmills and weather-vanes whistle and whizz.
Watching through windows, wishing for when
We walk in the woodland, wild weather again.

Weighing wastepaper while watching for wobbly wombats

Wand-waving witches, wizards with wings
Wondrous wardrobes, wool-gathering.
Word-play and writing
Wondrous and weird
Westward the wagons! We’re off Wombling….

Many thanks for all the fine Ws. X will be a bit of a stumper I think. Including today, only 3 days left. We’re in the final lap.

We’re now into Day 24, Letter X. Have fun – ABCs4Play.

Join us at #ABCs4Play easy as 1, 2, 3….
