about this at the college today and mentioned it to my son who was with me. At first he groaned, but when I told him which poem I’d picked out for him, he sid okay. And I explained how you share your poem with anyone who asks, or you can ask others. He especially liked the idea of bringing one with him to hids film studies class to ask the teacher and students there about poetry.
And… the poem I printed out for him is Clarence Lee by Shel Silverstein
