At 64, I am constantly amazed by the things I do not know. I have just
heard this poem for the first time (2/2/11)on NPR radio. Thunderstruck. It
is the most informative and concise description of life that I have ever
heard. Thank you Ms. Parker.

My mother first saw this poem in her English book in about 1947. She fell
in love with it. She copied it in study hall but forgot to write down the
name of the author. Here I am all these years later typing in the first
line and now we know the author.
When I was a kid I would say it is stupid to make your bed when you are
just going to get back in it. mom would laugh and recite this poem. That
made it a favorite of mine too!
