For your daily dose of poetry, head over to The Golden Orb for Carrie Nation's post du jour. I was planning on posting this one today, actually, so that worked out nicely.
My husband sang a choral version of this poem in NJ Region II Chorus under the direction of Ginny Moravek. That was 17 years ago. He still walks around singing it. In fact, any of this poem that I have memorized is his fault.
Enjoy! (And thanks, Carrie!)
