ATTENTION IPAD USERS!
Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

The New Baby

It’s here! Baby New Year arrived today
And everyone was thrilled to bring it home.
They smiled and cooed and tried to coax a giggle
From its lips with a funny face or two.
This fresh new baby offers so much promise…
But how long till its diaper’s not so fresh?
How long before we make the selfsame errors
That made us long to toss the old kid out?
We’re giddy with its fresh outlook on life…
But how long till its outlook gives us pause?
This year is new, not us; how long before
Old habits crush its young dreams? So I wonder…
What kind of home will Baby New Year know?
Perhaps it’s Mom and Dad who’ll need the diaper!
