April is National Poetry Month

Come feel the cool and shadowed breeze,
come smell your way among the trees,
come touch rough bark and leathered leaves:
Welcome to the night.


I’m celebrating National Poetry Month by ordering Dark Emperor and Other Poems of the Night by Joyce Sidman. Who could resist the charming invitation of Sidman’s prose, and Rick Allen’s distinctive illustrations:

Dark Emperor and Other Poems of the Night by Joyce Sidman
Illustrations by Rick Allen



I have one word for this picture book—timeless.


Note: I have a manuscript that would be perfect for Rick Allen! Hey, I can dream. It's allowed. LOL!
