April is National Poetry Month and April 18th is Poem in Your Pocket Day. It's a day to carry a poem with you and share it with friends, family, classmates, and co-workers. Here's my pick for 2013.
I found a dimpled spider, fat and white,
On a white heal-all, holding up a moth
Like a white piece of rigid satin cloth --
Assorted characters of death and blight
Mixed ready to begin the morning right,
Like the ingredients of a witches' broth --
A snow-drop spider, a flower like a froth,
And dead wings carried like a paper kite.
What had that flower to do with being white,
The wayside blue and innocent heal-all?
What brought the kindred spider to that height,
Then steered the white moth thither in the night ?
What but design of darkness to appall? --
If design governs in a thing so small.
Robert Frost 1874 - 1963
