This would be a great time to remember all those lovely lines of verse that are rattling around in our brains somewhere.
Since I don't feel much like writing today, I will put the question out to any of you wonderful souls who read this blog:
What poem or verses that you learned or memorized do you still remember? Did you have any favorites?
For myself the first books I remember receiving as gifts were ones of poetry. Christopher Robin and Pooh were part of my life before Disney discovered their market appeal, and at times I am a little saddened at having my imagination usurped by all those "imagineers".
I also have two wonderful and beautifully illustrated editions of poems by Eugene Fields. The Gingham Dog and The Calico Cat and Wynken Blynken and Nod were published by Follett and Company as part of their Read-Along series. The soft, round, and delicately colored illustrations by Helen Page are ones I don't think I will ever forget.
So tell me your poetry favorites.
