JoJo Bean

A Year

May, your mother's memories

June, we toil for Dad

July, bombs bursting in the air

August, dog days of summer had

September, all who labor

October, ships and candy glad

November, veteran's thanksgivings

December, the beginning of a man

January, new years happy

February, presidential groundhogs hearts aren't sad

March, lucky little green men

April, a fool is mad

A year of opportunity

for us to understand

A myriad of emotions

that a year sometimes demands

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
