Ergo Sum (National Poetry Month: Day 20)

If you would be a speaker of good verse,
you must, for at least one time in your life,
     dactyl the verse in all things.
     I dactyl and therefore I speak!
I speak, and so iamb.
  -Renes Decartes
   (loosely translated from the original)


You may not know (I didn't) that every day Garrison Keillor shares a poem on NPR. You can read or listen to past poems at 
On Monday he read one by Marge Piercy titled Where Dreams Come From that I recommend for you.
