Poetry has been and always will be part of us. Events in everyday life have been recited, chanted, and sung since the beginnings of language. In ballad or rap, sonnet or blues, poetry is the imaginative expression that illuminates something within us. But many children, and adults, shy away from poetry, thinking it's too complicated, remote, obscure--the baffling cousin to prose. Fly with Poetry, a witty, insightful collection of original poems, introduces a rich variety of poetic forms andtechniques--some handed down through the centuries, others comparatively new--and all presented in a clear, reader-friendly format. Through poetry with its myriad of forms there is no limit to the imagination. This fresh collection will inspire beginning poets of all ages to explore and discover the delight and excitement of words and language structure, and perhaps even create new forms of their own.
