30DoB: My Favorite Poem

Today's prompt: Favorite Poem
When I read through the prompts this was definitely the one I was most excited about writing. Even though I don't go out of my way to read poetry, I do have one poem that I love.  Here is a little bit of it:

The Builders has been my favorite poem since I read it in junior high. (No, it wasn't a homework assignment). I found a book of classic poetry that belonged to my mom and I read this poem so many times I memorized it. I only remember the first two stanzas now, but hey, its been years. It has a great message. The poem works as a comforting reminder that we all play an important role in the world. I hope you take the time to Google it and read it in it's entirety. 
I also like A Dream Within a Dream. It doesn't come close to how much I enjoy reading The Builders, but I do like it. It is easy to understand why it is such a popular classic
