This Poem By A 5-Year-Old Will Tear You Up

Poetry can be so elaborate and so profound. Yet in the following poem by J. J. Bitters, a little girl tears us up with a simple yet very sincere verse. Enjoy! Published with the permission of The Society of Classical Poets. The Society’s mission is to preserve humankind’s artistic traditions; to reestablish poetry as one of the most widely appreciated forms of literature, communication, and entertainment; to increase appreciation of centuries of rhyming or metered poetry; to support poets who apply classical techniques in modern poetry through publication and performance opportunities and awards; and to aid in language arts education that imbues high moral fiber and good character.
