Even though poetry month is officially over, I find myself reading some everyday.
Here are three of our favorites from this evening:
When I was two
I said to my mother
I don't like you, but I like you.
She laughed a long time.
I will spend the rest of my life
trying to figure this out.
Life is a tangle of
There are dead ends.
And there are choices.
And wrong turns,
and yield signs,
and instruction booklets,
and star maps,
Life is a maze.
You are a maze.
A lady was quoted in the newspaper.
"It is not so hard to feel wise.
Just think of something dumb you could say,
then don't say it."
I like her.
I would take her gingerbread
if I knew where her house was.
Julia Child the famous chef said,
"I never feel lonely in the kitchen.
Food is very friendly.
Just looking at a potato, I like
to pat it."
makes you feel tall.
Staring into someone else's eyes
makes you feel not alone.
Staring out the window during school,
you become the future,
smooth and large.
