No you don't get to take your poet home and keep it, but it was a nice thought for a few moments.
Have any of you done so? I wonder who we would all choose?
I think I'd give my 50 bucks for 5 equal shares of Dickinson, Frost, Sandburg, Longfellow and Poe.
I "adopt" a poet for Xmas ...
every year I choose a book from one author I like,
and give it to my friends, male or female
and I always give books to kids I know,
along with toys or whatever, for Xmas or their birthday
