Poem in Your Pocket!

Here is a poem for your pocket for this special, only-once-a-year-event. Which was yesterday. The same day as Shakespeare's baptism. (Coincidence?)

Anyway, enjoy!


Hurry! says the morning,
don't be late for school!

Hurry! says the teacher,
hand in papers now!

Hurry! says the mother,
supper's getting cold!

Hurry! says the father,
time to go to bed!

Slowly, says the darkness,
you can talk to me.
