Some poems were meant to be read aloud. Today's poem, a Valentine to corned beef, was meant to be sung.
It was written by Doe Macarus of Williams Bay, Wisconsin, who sang it for us during a recording in our studios. Macarus wrote the poem in fourth grade after receiving a Valentine's Day card from a boy. Now 84, she submitted it for our "Relationship Poems" contest.
Her poem is one of six selected by our judge, Susan Porterfield, a poet and English professor at Rockford University.
