Very nice.  I like that alot.  Tell me more about frog-dawn.  

A pleasant and unexpected mix of words - imagining frogs playing at dawn.

At work the have Poetry Out Loud..once a month...each month a different topic..and they alternate between an afternoon program and an evening one...started by a former resident...a librarian in her 90's

There is quite a crowd...I'd say at least 25 people.

Do folks have a poem ready when they attend? Or are they make up a poem during the session?

I'm not usually clever enough to understand a lot of poetry, but this poem about writing poetry by Jennifer Thomas struck me as charming.

The only one I can think of is the first one I ever had to learn in 1st grade, Trees by Joyce Kilmer, that ends:

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

Of course, it mentions God a couple times and I was in Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Elementary School.

Interesting article from last year about Joyce Kilmer's cross and its role in the traditions of the 69th Infantry Regiment (the Fighting 69th).
