Auguste Rodin In The USA

Ah, if only Rodin were alive to sculpt today,
If only he lived and worked in the good U.S.A,
I know he‘d visit our fine universities for inspiration,
He’d immerse himself in our culture and education.
And then just as he once deftly sculpted THE THINKER,
He would just as deftly sculpt THE COLLEGE BEER-KEGGING DRINKER.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sometimes I fear that the students who earn their A.A., B.A., and M.A. forget that the A stands for Arts not Alcoholism.

    if i had been a more able student i would have today my B.S. instead i only had my bachelorhood upon getting 'excused' from college in my senior year [nothing to do with beer]. of course, some since have referred to me and my ways, using the initial b.s., but it don't stand for Bachelor of Science.

    a very worthy poem, for art-lovers and humor-lovers and maybe MADD members. i would think 'we' could drop the -ING from KEGGING, but you may know the terminology better than i do, young lady.

    thanks for sharing. and thanks for the sobering poet's note as well. :) bri (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
