National Poetry Month -- Found Poetry

Found Poetry from Ray Bradbury's Zen in the Art of Writing



(from page 8 in the edition linked to above)


Ideas lie
everywhere
like apples fallen
and melting in the grass
for lack of wayfaring strangers
with an eye
and a tongue
for beauty, whether absurd,
horrific, 
or genteel.

-- Ray Bradbury
