1 Poem by G David Schwartz

My Mother Knew Sylvia Plath

My mother knew Sylvia Plath
But did not know  Ted Hughes
She told me that one day
I rejoiced in the news
I asked what was Ms Plath's
favorite subject in school
And favorite color
Did she have a sister or a mule
Or did she have a brother
Oh said my mother,
You silly silly boy
What are you talking about?
I just knew her work
Well that was a lesson
And here I will mention
I knew William Shakespeare
When I was a boy
