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.
