This week I’m sharing a pre-loved poetry treasure that I found in a local op shop. It’s one that was known to me, because it features my lovely friend, Katrina Germein. I had given a copy to my nieces many years ago – and now I have one for myself. Today I’m sharing Katrina’s poem in the collection, with illustrations by Katharine Lahn.

Goodnight train set,
Goodnight stars …
and goodnight me.

The book has since been rereleased in hardcover, with new cover and internal artwork by Doris Chang. You’ll find it on the Little Book Press site.
There’s nothing like a snippet of poetry to sing you gently into the weekend. Thanks Katrina, for letting me share, and Jone at Jone Rush MacCulloch, for hosting the Poetry Friday gathering this week.
