New Program: Poet's Corner

If you'd like to hear a poem
While you're at Please Touch Museum,
You might just be in luck
Because we have a place to see 'em.

If you do feel so inclined
I have to think that you may find
Our new program Poet's Corner
A pleasure most refined.

A quatrain from Shel Silverstein
About some lady named Maureen
Who had a talking pet, a
Border-Collie named Colleen.

Or even better, for my money,
A lyric for the baby bunny
Who drives the bus I take to work,
That might be kind of funny.

But, in the end, I will assume
I've caught your interest, and those of you whom
Would like to come and maybe see it
Can see it in the Program Room!
