There’s a poem to celebrate each and every moment in life-whether it’s hitting a home run, watching a sunset, or laughing with your best friend. A poem is a gift of the heart that can inspire, reassure, or challenge us. Memorize it-share it-it’s yours endlessly.
In this diverse collection, a companion to her New York Times #1 best-seller A Circle of relatives of Poems, Caroline Kennedy has chosen more than a hundred poems that speak to all of us: the young and young at heart, readers new to poetry and devoted fans. These poems explore deep emotions, in addition to unusual experiences. They cover the range of human experience and imagination. Divided into sections about nature, sports, monsters and fairies, friendship and Circle of relatives, this book is stuffed with surprises. Each and every section is preceded by Caroline’s thoughtful introduction reflecting her own Circle of relatives’s engagement with and enjoyment of poetry.
