POEM ~ Martin Luther King ~ By: Myra Cohn Livingston

Image from
 Reorganizing the "library box" today, I took a moment to leaf through "The Random House Book of Poetry for Children:  A Treasury of 572 Poems for Today's Child."   A poem titled "Martin Luther King" caught my eye:

Martin Luther King

Got me a special place
For Martin Luther King,
His picture on the wall
Makes me sing.

I look at it for a long time
And think of some
Real good ways
We will overcome.

   ~ Myra Colin Livingston

For many thought provoking quotes by Dr. King, check out Tim Milburn's website and his post titled "Martin Luther King Jr. Said...."  It was originally posted for Martin Luther King Day in 2010.
