It's Tax Day in the U.S., a day when the mind might be too occupied with deductions and long lines at the post office to think about poetry. But let's try: what's your favorite line of poetry? Song lyrics count.
Now We are Six, by A.A. Milne
When I was one, I had just begun.
When I was two, I was nearly new.
When I was three, I was hardly me.
When I was four, I was not much more.
When I was five, I was just alive.
But now I am six, I'm as clever as clever.
So I think I'll be six now forever and ever.
This is pretty much the theme poem of my life...
By the way, the 20th anniversary of my sixth birthday is in a month and three days (ahhhh, I'm such an old 6-year-old!). If I had a party, would any of you actually come this time? *puppy eyes*
