Poetry Monday: My first introduction to poetry

Like most young children in America (I like to believe), I was first introduced to the beauty of words and poetry through the magical works of Shel Silverstein.

Enjoy some silliness, word play, and creativity this Monday morning!

    • Oooh, good to know! I’ll have to check this out!

      I have mixed feelings for The Giving Tree, sometimes. I think, on the one hand, it’s beautiful, but on the other? The thought of giving giving giving until there’s nothing left of you to give could be an unhealthy message for some. ;)

      • Yep. He was a pretty prolific and interesting fellow.

        Very true about the Giving Tree. I saw a good parody of it from a feminist perspective once. Can’t remember where, though.

        • Prolific and interesting like Dr. Seuss? :)

          Hm. That might be worth looking up some time :) Thanks for the heads up :)

          • He did stuff in the military like Dr. Suess, but I don’t think Geisel did cartoons for Playboy. Or wrote hit songs. ;)
