It appears I might be gone from my blog for a couple days,
so I will not be able to meet my goal of a poem a day
for National Poetry Month.
But Thursday is Poem-in-Your-Pocket Day and
even though I haven’t been able to make my usual preparations for it,
I want to be sure you all have poems for your pockets,
so here is one of my favorites.
It won’t take long for you to write it down
and put it in your pocket
and slip it into the pocket of someone else
THE MIRACLE OF SPRING
We glibly talk
of nature’s laws,
but do things have
a natural cause?
Black earth becoming
— Piet Hein
Wishing you all poems for your pockets
and for the pockets of all you love!
