' A Poem that Played with Me! ' '


We played and played
Hours days months years
You went your way
And I went my way

Then began a game
Of hide and seek

Tired I pushed the door
There you're hiding...

Tired I dropped to the floor
There you're under the cot

Did you go your way?
Did I go my way?

We still play and play
Hours days months years
You didn't really go anywhere
Nor did I go my way!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
