Poet's Notes about The Poem

thank goodness? for computer programs which highlight misspelled words....... though not all programs seem to agree. one program didn't like 'ain't'. this latest one was ok with ain't but not with 'ok', and it clued me in that greenstick should be green stick and new-mown should be newly mowed. well WHO is the expert? right?

    A funny, whimsical piece. A cross between Dr Seuss and Gerard Manley Hopkins (at least the first couple of lines) ! Enjoyed this!
    I personally find it hard to write humorous pieces, so I applaud whenever I see one done well. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
