    April Fools

    Today is April 1, celebrated day for pranks, but it is also the beginning of poetry month. April was chosen perhaps to honor T.S. Eliot, whose line from The Waste Land begins:

    “April is the cruelest month”

    In honor of both the day and month, here is a poem appropriate for both:

    The Funny Thing About a Poem

    The funny thing 

    about a poem

    is how little it takes 

    to say simply enough

    It is merely a conversation 

    with the air

    over perhaps nothing

    only an observation

    alive upon a page

    that may leave a knowing smile

The Last Word

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
