Have you ever wanted to write a poem but were too nervous? I mean really, there are amazing poems out there. And then, there are some poems that I just don't get.
There are a few poets I LOVE:
Shel Silverstein: “If you are a dreamer,come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean-buyer. If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!”
Dr. Suess: “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You."
Emily Dickinson: "A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day."
Eliza R. Snow: "In the heav’ns are parents single? No, the thought makes reason stare!"
There are many, many more but I don't have time and space to give them all credit.
