dparker.jpgApril is going by fast and I’ve hardly posted any poems or written about National Poetry Month but I have been reading quite a bit of poetry actually. My mom and I have been sharing our thoughts on some Emily Dickinson poems. It’s wonderful to read the same poem and discuss it with someone to see what they got out of it don’t you think?

Anyway, the poem I want to share with you today though is Observation by Dorothy Parker from the collection Poems of New York. I’ve not read this one before but oh I love it. I think I need to print this out and put it on my inspiration board.

If I don’t drive around the park,
I’m pretty sure to make my mark.
If I’m in bed each night by ten,
I may get back my looks again,
If I abstain from fun and such,
I’ll probably amount to much,
But I shall stay the way I am,
Because I do not give a damn.

So, how about you? Found any new poems to love this month?
