In the merry month of May
When green leaves begin to spring,
Little lambs do skip like fairies,
Birds do couple, build, and sing.
A swarm of bees in May
Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.
May

Books in Public Domain

Hello everybody! I just bought an Amazon Kindle and I saw that there are many free books in public domain. Most of them are classics like Alice's adventures in wonderland. I just read the wonderful wizard of oz and I love it. What other books do you recommend?

    You can subscribe to Bookbub @Fell, and they send not only notification of what free Amazon deals are available on that day, but also very cheap books you can buy too.

    If you are particularly interested in just the old classics, have you checked out Project Gutenberg?

    I am useless at poetry myself @ThomasJude. I think it is a real skill regardless of how well you know a language.

    @ThomasJude - @Bubbly is very keen on poetry. She ran a poetry group in Google Plus, but sadly Google Plus has just been closed. She is not very active in the forum any more, but she is in the Skype group, so you could ask her.

    One of the sites I like to visit is an edu site. They give this advice: Read, read, and read more; read as many good examples as you can find. Then write, write, write, and revise, revise, revise.
