I really like "Recuerdo."
I would like to read more poems that
* are celebratory, not painful or depressing
Bonus points if
* it's relatively modern (the "subway fares" sets the poem in the 20th Century)
* it's short enough to memorize
* it's written by a woman
(In case it's not obvious, I'm open to poems by anyone, not just Millay.)
