Many of us were introduced to poetry as a child, where we enjoyed clapping and chanting Nursery Rhymes with parents, grandparents and at preschool. As we grew up school may well have interfered with our continued enjoyment of ‘the poem’. Fortunately it is easy enough to re-discover the excitement of the words and rhythms of poetry.
In this poetry collection, written over five years, the author suggests thought-provoking ideas to inspire the reader to sit and write a poem. Presented as a diary which can begin at any time during the year, thoughts and notes by Anne-Marie Moore inspire the reader to follow the creative process.
