Poetry Friday: Grace Paley
August 24, 2007
If you have a house
you must think about it all the time
as you reside in the house so
it must be a home in your mind
from "House: Some Instructions," by Grace Paley. Read the entire poem at the Poety Foundation.
For more verses, consult The Book Mine Set for all the Poetry Friday entries today.
Great selection. Thanks.

Why don't we have done with all those real estate contracts and just read and sign this poem instead?

Great posting. I posted something on Paley but hadn't thought of this poem. Great selection.

You're welcome, Susan. I'm hoping to find the book of Grace Paley's poems at the library today.
