A Birthday Poem

Rating: 3.3
Just past dawn, the sun stands
with its heavy red head
in a black stanchion of trees,
waiting for someone to come
with his bucket
for the foamy white light,
and then a long day in the pasture.
I too spend my days grazing,
feasting on every green moment
till darkness calls,
and with the others
I walk away into the night,
swinging the little tin bell
of my name.

This poem is exquisite. it may not talk of birthday cakes with his name on...but the way he plays on the imagination of the reader when he speaks of a bell with his name on. It is exquisite, simply put just beautiful.

2) like In addition to poetry, Kooser has written in a variety of forms including personal essays, and literary criticism. That is very interesting though. I have enjoyed very much having read this A Birthday Poem. Very impressive words here. Cutest clearly conveyed.5 Stars!
