Under ett rabarberblad

Underneath a Rhubarb Leaf

A fine first encounter with poetry

Underneath a Rhubarb Leaf features short pieces of writing that inspire thinking. For reading alone or together, one poem at the time or all at once. 

Rhymed verses about nature and animals, about a lost mitten and a frozen vegetable garden. Lena Sjöberg’s lyrical poems and fantastic pictures bring us different seasons, changing settings and unusual meetings. 

Shady cool, sunny bright

Carrots side by side

Little kitten, paws so white

Sleeps beneath a kale leaf wide.

Sun rays pouring down, down, down

Hot fur on kitten gleams

Kitty makes a sleepy sound

We can’t know what she dreams.

Shady cool, sunny bright

The tail, a sudden sweep

Little kitten, paws so white

In our garden sleeps
