National Poetry Month, Day One: We were on a break

Just what I needed today.
Remember that episode of Friends where Ross and Rachel take a break? And then we suffer through seven more seasons of iffiness? We now know how they feel. CathyBlogs was rather thinking like Ross but has come to realize it's better to be Rachel.

Because National Poetry Month is no time to take a break, especially when we've accepted the 2014 April Poem a Day challenge.

Since April kind of took us by surprise, rather than try to write something new (even though a certain pale poem we've spent two nights staring at would have done nicely, IF it could be finished) we recycled a past pale poem that included both beginnings and endings, those being the themes for the day. Perhaps you remember 'In Today's Forecast.'

And to balance the bad poetry with the good, here's the poem we shared on Facebook today, where we're going to make those folks enjoy a poem a day in April, too:

April Rain Song by Langston Hughes
Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.

In case you forgot about the break thing:


Sam Smith. Because we're latching on to this poem a day thing (again). Musical poetry:
