Daily One Inch Button #245 - A Poem A Day

Sometimes it is the smallest things that can keep a person happy.

I was most pleased the other day when I managed to remember this poem by Edna St. Vincent Mallay:

Safe upon the solid stone the ugly houses stand
Come and see my shining palace built upon the sand

They say that it is good to have a few poems memorized. One of my grade school teachers challeneged me to memorize The Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll.

I still haven't managed to get that one down.
