It's been awhile since I've written a poem in my notebook. You should take the time, too.
You can find a poem in many places: at home, at school (oodles of books in the classroom!), in the library, or on-line (poets.org). Better yet, ask a friend or a family member what their favorite poem is and then copy it in your notebook.
It is important to write down the words! Record them so you have them always.
The poem I choose today is April Rain, by Langston Hughes.
Because I, too, love the rain.
Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.
Happy searching. I look forward to reading what you find.
