National Poetry Day Today!

The theme of this years National Poetry Day is water -
here are some short poems I like

by Emily Dickinson

I started Early – Took my Dog -
And visited the Sea -
The Mermaids in the Basement
Came out to look at me -

I bought a book of water,
its covers bound in weed,
its spine of muscled silver,
its words too quick to read.

by James Carter

Babies in the bath do it
Puddles on the path do it
Grannies for a laugh do it
Splish Splash Splosh!

by Wes Magee

Here goes the sun
Slowly sailing by,
Like a red boat
On the ocean of the sky
