This week, A WORLD FULL OF POEMS edited by Sylvia Vardell made its debut. You can read Irene's interview with Sylvia about her new book here . I haven't seen a copy yet, but the "Look Inside" preview on Amazon is gorgeous, and below is part Amazon's written description.
This thoughtfully crafted anthology is perfect for children new to verse and for young poetry fans seeking out new favorites. Explore poetry from a diverse selection of contemporary and historical poets, covering a broad range of topics--from personal subjects like emotions and family, to the wonders of the natural environment. Carefully selected works encourage children to see the poetry in everything and to embrace the beauty of their everyday lives.
Doesn't that sound wonderful? My copy (and a few extras to gift family members) will arrive on Saturday. My grandchildren will be here, and I can't wait to share it with them.
a harvest moon
across the sky.
It hid behind
a wisp of clouds,
for I’m a lot
When I’m feeling
to hide it

As some of you know, I've been blogging about my progress writing a verse novel. If you are interested, you can read my latest post here.
Finally, a big thank you to Bridget for hosting this week's Poetry Friday.
Have a great week!
