Pick a Poem for Your Pocket!

Did you know that April 18th is Poem in Your Pocket Day?  At, you can download and print a poem to share with others.  Irma likes "Afternoon on a Hill" by Edna St. Vincent Millay on this sunny day:

I will be the gladdest thing
   Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
   And not pick one.

I will look at cliffs and clouds
   With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass,
   And the grass rise.

And when lights begin to show
   Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
   And then start down!
