April is National Poetry Month

Let's kick off National Poetry Month with a poem!

The Universe

The universe is every place,
Including all the e m p t y space.
It's every star and galaxy,
All objects of astronomy,
Geography, zoology
(Each cat and dog and bumblebee,)
All persons throughout history - - -
Including you,
Including me.

by Douglas Florian
