This is an amusing little poem and you can hear it read by the poet, Richard Wilbur, here at the Internet Poetry Archive. He includes, too, a fun story about the origin of the poem.
And, as long as you're there listening to Richard Wilbur, listen to The Writer -- one of my favorite poems -- one more time.
The Poetry Friday round-up can be found today here, at Mentor Texts, Read-Alouds & More.
And, do be sure to read this post at Read, Write, Believe about all the poetry goodies found in The Washington Post.
