"T" is for Twain

I'm toying with the idea of doing a Mark Twain book read-aloud with my son this summer--The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.  I'm not sure my son--who is quite sedentary and indoorsy (is that a word?)--will like the tale.  I digress.  Though he is known for his novels and essays, Twain did write some poetry.  One can start learning about Twain at the "official" web site--click HERE.  The photo below is from that site.

Warm Summer Sun
by Mark Twain

Warm summer sun,
   Shine kindly here,
Warm southern wind,
   Blow softly here.
Green sod above,
   Lie light, lie light.
Good night, dear heart,
   Good night, good night.
