I’d like to share a poem I wrote in honor of today’s observance.
This day is set as “Poetry Break Day,” and that is nation-wide,
Whether in North Dakota, or Hawaii you abide.
Today’s a day to take a break and enjoy this form of writ,
Or why not try and compose a poem, if you’ve got the grit!
A poem can be a special way to tell some one you care,
Why not jot one down when you’ve got time to spare?
Reading poetry can surely be a way you can relax –
Wouldn’t you rather read a poem than file income tax?
Here at St. Anne’s, I wonder if folks will take the time
to stop their daily goings-on to enjoy a rhyme.
