Old Poem Saturday – Counting-Out Rhyme – Edna St. Vincent Millay


Today is going to be both Old Poem Saturday and raw-unedited doodle Saturday as well! Apparently, inside my head, Edna St. Vincent Millay’s lovely poem “Counting-Out Rhyme” + lunch-time Friday meeting = doodle of Lord of the Rings-esque falcons. Who knew? You can read the whole poem here (on the very cool “Standing Out in my Field” blog). Composition and doodle (right in the lab notebook, ball point ink originally, colored with markers later) by me. Have a wonderful weekend!


    1. Thank you so much! I’m pretty sure the co-workers sitting next to me in that meeting could see I was drawing something as it became more elaborate – who knows what they thought? I don’t feel too bad though for doodling, because half of them were on their phones, texting under the table!
