Three songs today...the first one is from a poem by Dana Gioia (I shared it a while back).

Lastly, we have the Eric Whitacre Singers performing an ee cummings poem. (Yes, I'm fangirling Eric Whitacre again!)

Some of y'all will be into the song about homemade canned food I shared for Music Monday.
You can find the Poetry Friday round-up at The Logonauts. Thanks, Katie!
