Hello Dear Ones!
My poet choice for this week is one of my favourite singer/songwriters – Harry Chapin. Many of you may know him best for his song “Cats in the Cradle”. However, did you know the song was written originally as a poem by his wife, Sandy? A popular version was also sung by Cat Stevens. Of all the music Harry wrote, this was his only number one hit.
Harry was more than a singer, songwriter and musician, he was also an author and playwright. And Harry was known to be quite the humanitarian – his band did a lot of work for World Hunger. One year they raised almost $800,000 for that worthy cause.
