My poetry post

Many of my colleagues and those that I admire post Edna Vincent Millay.  I am not as literary as they are.  My poetry post is this:

Student, why do you dream of me
When you dream of your acre of trees?
It was agreed I came to burn leaves
It’s all I ever claimed to do
A ploughman i’ll never grow into

-from “Ultimatum” by John Roderick
