National Read Great Poetry Day


Continuing the celebration of National Poetry Month, April 28th is


 The idea is for us to kick back with whatever great poetry we desire and thoroughly enjoy the experience!

So, what will I be experiencing today? A variety of great poetry from Shel Silverstein!  My collection of his books, consists of Different Dances, A Light in the Attic, The Missing Piece, Everything On It and the beloved Where the Sidewalk Ends!

Join people from all over the world who are entering the world of GREAT POETRY today!  Allow Shel Silverstein to welcome you with this classic from Where the Sidewalk Ends:

If you are a dreamer, come in

If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,

A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer

If you are a pretender, come sit by my fire

For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. 

Come in! Come in!

happy reading, everyone,  Annette Rochelle

    I will be revisiting Dowson. One of my favourite poems is:
    “They are not long the weeping and the laughter. Love, and desire and hate. I think they have no portion in us after we pass the gate. They are not long the days of wine and roses. Out of a misty dream our path emerges for a while, then closes within a dream”. Thanks to Annette for this post. Kevin
