I love Shel Silverstein's poetry. When I taught the kids of all grade levels loved what this guy had to say. Adults too love his lyrics, wit and sense of humour. Sadly he passed away and the poetry world lost a mastermind of the rhyming word. I cannot do him justice with my mere words but eagerly and happily direct you to his website which in itself is an incredible experience. It lists his bio, his books, his art etc. I will leave you with some samples of his genius and pray you will stop by "www.shelsilverstein.com" today and play around. Have an awesome day and read on.
