one from Caleb (a couplet)
Not me, I didn't go into your home
and steal the telephone
The National Poetry month website suggested that everyone commit a new poem to memory. They are assuming you have lots and lots of poetry already committed to memory. I for one am always confusing those last verses of "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening," but ask me to recite "Eldorado" sometime.
For this assignment I chose the shortest poem I could find.
by Edna St. Vincent Millay
My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night
But ah my friends and oh my foes
It gives a lovely light!
