Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew. Cover it in chocolate and make a miracle or two. The candy man, the candy man can. The candy man can' cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.
I love that poem and it was also a song. Now I have it stuck in my head, lolo!
Alexander Beetle by AA Milne. Except that isn't the name of it .... I think it's called forgiveness. I still love it! I found a lttle beetle, so that beetle was his name, And I called him Alexander and he answered just the same I put him in a matchbox and i kept him all the day And nanny let my beetle out, Yes, nanny let my beetle out She went and let my beetle out And beetle ran away..............
I can't recall reading much poetry at a very young age, outside of the fabulous Dr. Seuss, but I became very interested in poetry in high school after reading e.e. cumming's 'i carry your heart with me.'
When I was 9 years old, I saw this poem while riding a particular bus. I was into princesses then, so it fascinated me.
HER VERY FROWNS ARE FAIRER FAR "She is not fair to outward view As other maidens be. Her loveliness I never knew, Until she smiled on me, Oh! then I saw her eye was bright, A well of love, a spring of light,
But now her looks are coy and cold, To mine they ne'er reply, And yet I cease not to behold The love-light in her eye. Her very frowns are fairer far, Than smiles of other maidens are. ~ Hartley Coleridge (1746-1849)
