In honor of our new month, and the fact that it's actually cold here, I give you an excerpt from Chicken Soup with Rice: A Book of Months by Maurice Sendak
it's so nice
on the sliding ice
to sip hot chicken soup with rice.
Sipping chicken soup with rice.
I must thank my friend Melissa for reminding me of this and, in the interests of full disclosure, tell you that I really hate rice in my soup. ;) The roundup is over at A Year of Reading. Enjoy!
