Someone sent me an invitation from NaPoWriMo to write a poem a day for a month, but I need a website to post them. Since this is the only blog/website I have, I’m going to use this one. There will be a poem each day for a month, all written on the day they were posted, dashed off quickly, but what fun to have completed 30 poems by the end of the month. Please join me and post your poems here, as well.
Earlier today, someone posted a comment, then wrote back to change “lying” to “laying.” Of course, I had to fight my better nature and write back that he was actually right the first time. I then included this little poem, written in about a minute, to soften that pedantic blow. Yes, I really am a “reformed” English teacher. But I backslide now and then:
Old English teachers never die.
They just advise on “lay or lie?”
