I was in Speech Club during high school, and I had to memorize a bunch of poems for my speech meets since my category was Extemporaneous Poetry. To celebrate National Poetry Month, I’ll be sharing a favorite poem each Friday of April.
This week’s poem is not a cheerful happy one, but I remember relishing the last two lines, making them contrast with each other as much as I could. It’s been running through my mind this week, so it gets shared with you all first. I hope you enjoy it!
