Just something I thought was awesome for reals …

Click the link up in the tweet or right here to read writer Tony Noland’s short poem about the subtle beauty of that oft-misunderstood piece of punctuation, the semi-colon.

This would catch my eye any day of the year, but considering it’s National Grammar Day, I’m all the more excited about it.

No, that’s not my arm. But a fella can dream.

Today’s Internet Win point gets split between Tony (@TonyNoland), the writer of this semi-colon love story, and the Grammar Girl herself, Mignon Fogarty (@GrammarGirl), who published Tony’s opus in her newsletter back in 2009 and tweeted about it today in honor of this national holiday.
