"I did not fail 101 times, but I simply found 101 ways that did not work." -Thomas Edison

Freckles, frosting, glimmer, and Caleb
Are my favorite things, even at the table
Be mere, be slight, be happy, be night
I have a heart and a hickory might
Be four dozen eggs in a carton of love
I love to sing of these things from above
Be more than pale, dusty fellows
I`d say we were stuck in some bellows
Be kidding little dolls in a pile of mud
I`d think it`d be better if they were in blood
Be a million pillows in a million knight`s dreams
I`d run for my life, and scared I`d seem

Caleb is my brother, and he`s at the top of my list for favorites. This is a poem that was inspired by just purely writing. I love to write for writing`s sake, and this shows it.
