"I never saw a purple cow,

I never hope to see one.

But I can tell you anyhow-

I'd rather see than be one!"

That poem by Gelett Burgess was one of my favorites when I was a kid.  Something about its silliness just appealed to me.  My grandma got a kick out of it, too, so I gave her a vase in the form of a purple cow, which she treasured because it was something we shared. 

April is National Poetry Month.  Do you have a favorite poem, or a favorite poet?  Check out the "Poet Tree" in the lobby at the library.  You can write a few lines from your favorite poem and hang it on the tree.  And while you're at the library, we have plenty of poetry books you can enjoy, too!
