Shel Silverstein's March 25th poem goes here (scroll down).

I have searched the home book shelves high and low in an effort to locate our volumes of his entertaining verse.

We loved reading and listening to him when the girls were youngsters.

DD#3 could quote him at length.

No doubt they each have a favorite.

Mine might be the one about the girl who is *sick*... until she finds out it's Saturday...and she doesnt have to go to school anyway :)

Since I couldnt find our copies, I may have return to the public library and borrow theirs. Surely they are here somewhere! But it would be ok to visit the library because then I could also borrow again The Spoken Arts Treasury, volumes (I, II, & III). These are audio renditions of poets reading their own works. It's interesting to hear their voices.

None, however, have been as entertaining as Silverstein.

Consider visiting his website.

National Poetry Month is just around the corner.

Added later:


No one's hangin' stockin's up,
No one's bakin' pie,
No one's lookin' up to see
A new star in the sky.
No one's talkin' brotherhood,
No one's givin' gifts,
And no one loves a Chritsmas tree
On March the twenty-fifth.
