Although I'm not a poet, I enjoy reading poetry. The 2014 poster below is designed by Chip Kidd. It features the lines "Failing to fetch me at first Keep encouraged,/ Missing me one place search another,/ I stop somewhere waiting for you." from Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself."

Now, I'm very shyly going to share the one poem I've had published with you. It was written when I was in the eighth grade for a class assignment. The teacher sent my poem to a high school anthology and it was published in Young America Sings.
I often lie awake at night,
Watching stars that are so bright.
They sparkle and twinkle in the cool night air,
And look like ladies with lovely golden hair.
You see the little dipper and the big dipper too,
Away up in the deep dark blue,
But then come the morning rays of light
And all the stars are gone until tonight.
