National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month. I figured I'd share some of my favorites and some of the poems I'm reading with my kids. The first is a short one, but one of my favorite poems. It's by Yehuda Amichai.

Forgetting Someone

Forgetting someone is like forgetting to turn off the light
in the backyard so it stays lit all the next day

But then it is the light that makes you remember.
