Put a poem in your pocket

Tomorrow, April 26th, is 'Poem in your pocket day'.

http://www.poets.org/page.php/prmID/406

Tomorrow morning I have a big meeting, so I'm going to start by reading a poem. I haven't decided which one though.

To fire me for reciting a poem at a meeting would be to fire Lady Gaga for wearing an outlandish dress at a concert.

You used to have it as your signature, if I recall correctly. It's quite a thought provoking line, at least I found myself pondering it from time to time.

As far as my poem went, I settled on a line from Easter 1916 (Yeats). "Too long a sacrifice can make a stone of the heart, oh when will it suffice."

The topic of the meeting was a proposed merger that's been debated about since 2008, so it was quite fitting.

A proposed merger - ha, I know all about that.

The mind has a thousand eyes
The heart just one
Yet the light of a whole life dies
When love is done.
