Poem In My Pocket

Are you ready for Poem In Your Pocket Day? I am.

In case you are wondering what poem I’ll be reading, here’s an excerpt:

The month of May, the merry month of May,
So long awaited, and so quickly past.
The winter’s over, and it’s time to play.

I saw a hundred shades of green today
And everything that Man made was outclassed.
The month of May, the merry month of May….

So carpe diem, gather buds, make hay.
The world is glorious. Compare, contrast
December with the merry month of May.
Now is the time, not is the time to play.

Excerpt from The Month of May by Wendy Cope.

I needed a feel good poem today and this one makes me think of good days ahead. Tell me what poem you’d carry in your pocket.
