Today marks a new beginning--2010. Last year I marked the first poetry Friday with Tennyson, my traditional New Year's Eve read. This year I thought I'd mark the beginning of 2010 with something a little different.
Love Poem With ToastThe round up is being hosted by Mary Lee at A Year of Reading. Do stop by and take in all the poetry being shared. Before you go, be sure to check out this week's poetry stretch results. Happy poetry Friday to you and a very happy new year.
by Miller Williams
Some of what we do, we do
to make things happen,
the alarm to wake us up, the coffee to perc,
the car to start.
The rest of what we do, we do
trying to keep something from doing something,
the skin from aging, the hoe from rusting,
the truth from getting out.
