No--Not a Famous Poet

While riding home from a volleyball game she just helped coach, my older daughter asked if I would help her with her English homework.  Of course I would. 

"We have to annotate some poem and make connections with Great Expectations," she added.

"Oh . . . what is the poem?" I followed.

"I don't know.  It's not by anyone famous or anything," she replied.

When we got home she drug her homework to the table, opened up her folder, and pulled out her "not famous" poet's work:  William Butler Yeats' (Yeats) When You Are Old.  No--I only wrote a few major papers citing Yeats in college.  No--not famous at all.
