Poem of the Day: "You're" by Sylvia Plath, Poet of the Month

The Songs of Eretz Poem of the Day for September 4, 2014 is “You're” (1960) by Sylvia Plath, Poet of the Month.  A link to the poem, reprinted from Plath's Collected Poems, may be found here:  http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/178971.  A brief biography of Plath and references may be found here:  http://eretzsongs.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-songs-of-eretz-poet-of-month-for.html

Well, for once a happy poem by Plath, this one all about the joys of being pregnant.  Once the conceit is discovered, "You're" is truly a delightful poem that I believe any happily pregnant lady would find uplifting.
