When I Was Three -- Richard Edwards

       
(Poem #1614) When I Was Three
 When I was three, I had a friend
 Who asked me why bananas bend,
 I told him why, but now I'm four
 I'm not so sure...
-- Richard Edwards
I was randomly browsing through some children's poetry when I came across
this delightful little piece. It reminds me of Silverstein, or perhaps
Milne, in its light-hearted exploration of the myriad little rites of
passage that mark childhood. I particularly love the way the poem strikes a
balance between seriousness (from the narrator's point of view) and warm
amusement (from a grown up perspective), and how, despite the humour,
there's a revelation that borders on the profound.

Incidentally, the narrator shows remarkable precocity in realising at age
four that he didn't know everything - I think the average age for that
particular rite of passage is closer twenty one these days :)

....this was one of the most weird question in the world, I mean you don't have to question about a poem, you feel the poem, you express the poem, and finally you fell in love with the poem.

"I would like to add the kind words that Rain Pryor, daughter of Richard Pryor, gave to me to read on the memorial tribute to Rick on Napa's local TV station."

Great article. Since an interview is a business meeting, one must present themselves professionally. You know you are qualified for the job, otherwise they would not have called you for an interview. Now it is the time to sell yourself, showcase your accomplishments and how your expertise can be utilized with the company. Lastly, one must follow up, both by email and mail. Bring value to your notes and make a lasting impression.
