A few weeks ago, we did dictionary entry poems for Tricia’s Poetry Stretch. Thinking about poems that define things brought to mind Lee Bennett Hopkins’ Alphathoughts, a fantastic collection of very short poems from A to Z, each offering a pithy definition. I pulled it down off my shelf, and Im going to share two favorites of mine from the book, and they show the range of sacred (to me, anyway) to profane this collection encompasses.
–Lee Bennett Hopkins,
Aren’t they wonderful? I especially love those "bound/forevers." Forever is captured in each book, and I also feel bound, traveling, on a journey to forever and never every time I open a book. I love how so much is captured in those six words.
