Is that a poem in your pocket or…?
Happy Poem In Your Pocket Day!
Last week, Women’s Voices For Change reminded me that today is Poem in Your Pocket Day.
Every year, I’m a little baffled. I have 4 rows of poetry on my shelves. I’ve read a rather smaller percentage of each entire book than I’m willing to admit. But… even with what I’ve read… what to choose? The decisions!
Probably, it will be Shel Silverstein:
If you are a dreamer, come in
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
Come in, come in!
