“Keep A Poem In Your Pocket”
By Beatrice Schenk de Regniers

Keep a poem in your pocket
And a picture in your head
And you’ll never feel lonely
At night when you’re in bed.

The little poem will sing to you
The little picture bring to you
A dozen dreams to dance to you
At night when you’re in bed.

"If there were a recipe for a poem, these would be the ingredients: words, sounds, descriptions, feeling, memory, rhyme and imagination. They can be put together a thousand different ways, a thousand, thousand more." -Karla Kuskin
