It’s All I Have to Bring Today

It’s all I have to bring to-day,
This, and my hyphen beside,
This, and my commas, and apostrophes,
And all the periods I plied.
Be sure you count, should I forget,—
Some one the sum could tell,—
This, and my dashes, and exclamation points!
Which in the stanzas dwell.

 

The original is one of the poems highlighted by poets.org, a beautiful site by the Academy of American Poets. Interpretation at the Prowling Bee.
