A Couplet Writen by John Ashbery at Age Eight

The tall haystacks are great sugar mounds/
These are the fairies' camping grounds

My parents recently found a poem I'd written to my mother that was in couplets, like this one:

My mom is so very nice
because she never has any lice.

Ha! Beat that Mr. Poet Laureate! ;-)

Seriously, I can't believe I'm admitting this. Can I at least add that I was probably barely able to spell my own name when I wrote those amazing lines.
