Norman's May

When I think of Norman,
My brain pops up with the images of Mary Fallin, Julie Cohen,
David and Molly Boren,
Plus Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History...
A town south of Oklahoma City and city Moore,
Norman has abundant attractions to explore.
Norman public schools are beautiful,
Advanced high school students from OSSM come to OU to enroll,
Sweet thanksgiving party with mathematical fellows,
Many thanks go to Huaqing Wu, Julia, Tao(Alan) and Meijun Zhu,
Recall the education excellence banquet at OKC cox convention center,
Incentives for high school graduates turn friendlier,
AP scholars, national merit finalists,
Football championships, broom sticks,
Norman's May is fulfilling,
Norman's May is as elegant as the poetry of Emily Dickerson.

Free Verse By Robert Frost

Open form Free Verse, One such poem is Robert Frost's "The Silken Tent".
She is as in a field a silken tent
At midday when a sunny summer breeze
Has dried the dew and all its ropes relent,
So that in guys it gently sways at ease,
And its supporting central cedar pole,
That is its pinnacle to heavenward
And signifies the sureness of the soul,
Seems to owe naught to any single cord,
But strictly held by none, is loosely bound
By countless silken ties of love and thought
To everything on earth the compass round,
And only by one's going slightly taut
In the capriciousness of summer air
Is of the slightest bondage made aware.
