HOW MANY, HOW MUCH (Monday Poem)

by Shel Silverstein

How many slams in an old screen door?
     Depends how loud you shut it.
How many slices in a bread?
     Depends how thin you cut it.
How much good inside a day?
     Depends how good you live 'em.
How much love inside a friend?
     Depends how much you give 'em.

from A Light in the Attic poems and drawings by Shel Silverstein, 1981, Harper & Row
