If someone put a gun to your head and said "Recite a poem right now if you care for your life!" what poem would it be?
I think mine might be Batty by Shel Silverstein from A Light in the Attic . One of my favorites.
In fact my boys were both baby bats for their very first Halloweens, inspired by this very poem.
Whit's been introducing new wonderful poetry finds... and I just end up going back to my tried and true favorite since forever. I've somehow picked up and extra copy of this book recently (can't resist a good thrift you know).
