When you read the poem, "Roadside Stand" (Why am I so happy that I was born? Just one reason (in season): SWEET CORN!"), one can feel the elation of enjoying a favorite, limited treat. Another poem, "Screen Door", helps a child see how one can use poetry to describe everyday things in new ways (When fog blurs the morning, Porches glisten, shingles drip. Droplets gather on the screen door. "Look," they seemed to say to one another, "Look how dry it is inside.").
Some of the poems have stirred our imagination as I've read them with my daughter, others make us contemplative, others make us smile and even laugh out loud. And isn't that exactly what poetry should do?
