My sister Melanie has been having "Poem of the day" on her blog. I skimmed over it quickly because the first line bored me, but today I randomly read it and loved the Poem. Well I actually just loved a passage in the poem, but almost the same thing. Here it is:
I want to be famous in the way a pulley is famous, or a buttonhole, not because it did anything spectacular, but because it never forgot what it could do.
I am still smiling after reading this. I love it! I think it hits on how many of us feel. Maybe I can expand later, but probably not. You either get poetry or you don't. I get this passage. I agree with it and it makes me want to get up and do more with my day. So thank you Mel for putting "boring" poetry on your blog.
