    CONGRATULATIONS on being chosen as the Modern Poem Of The Day. Hooray to the family of the late poetess. I always enjoy reading her poems, her observations are always very keen, like:
    Who has not Congress, lobster, love, luau,
    the Regency Room, the Statue of Liberty,
    runs. A sloppy amalgamation.
    A mistake.
    A cliff.
    Scintillating! 5*****.

    'The only sanity is a cup of tea.
    The music is in minors.

    Each one other
    is having different weather.' - loved this observation.

    Congratulations to the poet, posthumously, for the well deserved honour of having her poem selected as the 'Modern Poem of the Day'!
