Is that a poem in your pocket or…?

April 26, 2012

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:

INVITATION

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!
