Flashback To Discovery


Picked up and read Shel Silverstein,

Looking for a real quick read.

Crazy that I still know the name of it, 

But claiming "Hug O' War" as my favorite.


Discovered poetry in the second grade,

Oh how the time flies by.

I could show you the impact it's made,

I doubt the effects will ever subside.



Words on a page are power,

Words on a page that have been read are pride.

Whether the words are about rain or a flower,

The words on the page are mine.



Where The Sidewalk Ends is still on my shelf today!
