APRIL IS NATIONAL
POETS ON STAMPS
April is the month to celebrate poetry and all our poets. Take a look at our website (click poets
) to view a collection of famous poets honored by both the US Post Office and post offices around the world in the collection are stamps featuring past Poet Laureates including Robert Frost, Robert Penn Warren and Richard Hayden.
Here is a simple stamp poem which children might especially like:
There was a little postage stamp
No bigger than your thumb;
But still it stuck right to the job
Until the work was done.
They licked it and they pounded it
'Til it would make you sick;
And the more it took a-lickin'
The better it would stick.
Let's all be like the postage stamp
In playing life's rough game;
And just keep on a-stickin'
Tho' we hang our heads in shame.
The stamp stuck to the letter
'Till it saw it safely through;
There's no one can do better
Let's keep sticking and be true.
