This Book Is Dedicated to Love. Well, I’m sure Love is flattered.

This book is sweet and colorful, full of rhythmic bits that will get stuck in your head, goofy lines and wordplay.

“Writing poems
is a popular pastime
plenty of people pursue.

Writing it
pleases their palates,
particularly apes in Peru.”

“As I linger on a thought
looking out to sea,
I wonder if a little bit
the sea remembers me.

We wallowed in the Summer,
We walked in Spring and Fall,
Winter’s here, and I fear,
it knows me not at all.”

Again, her sense of rhythm.

This book is expensive and hard to get and so may not be worth it for everyone. But it is a lovely, lovely book.
