Day 1: What is my favorite poem?

Day 1: What is my favorite poem?

It's not the most meaningful of the poems I like, such as this one is. 

It's not a really long poem, such as this one is. 

But it brings a smile to my face each and every time that I read it or hear it spoken.  It has since the day that my mother brought me to the Huntington Library and bought be a book by Ogden Nash.  It was a poetry book, specifically about animals called Zoo and very well suited for children.  Enjoy! 

The Termite

by Ogden Nash

Some primal termite knocked on wood

And tasted it, and found it good!

And that is why your Cousin May

Fell through the parlor floor today.
