Friday Poetry: Mary Ann Hoberman

Happy Friday!

I hope you all have good plans for the weekend.

My chosen poem this week is by the author and poet Mary Ann Hoberman (1930).

Mayfly

Think how fast a year flies by
A month flies by
A week flies by
Think how fast a day flies by
A Mayfly's life lasts but a day
A single day
To live and die
A single day
How fast it goes
The day
The Mayfly
Both of these.
A Mayfly flies a single day
The daylight dies and darkness grows
A single day
How fast it flies
A Mayfly's life
How fast it grows.
