    The Man

    Shel is the man. He was a great artist and poet. I loved his songs that Dr. Hook and others did. They always had some humor in them. I also loved his children’s and adult books. Yes even though he is most famous for his children books I found out several years ago from a guy I...

    “There is a place where the sidewalk ends And

    before the street begins, And there the grass grows soft and white, And there the sun burns crimson bright, And there the moon-bird rests from his flight To cool in the peppermint wind. Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black And the dark street winds and bends...

    My Favorite, "The Yipiyuk"

    In the swamplands long ago, Where the weeds and mudglumps grow, A Yipiyuk bit upon my toe… Exactly why I do not know. I kicked and cried I hollered “Oh”— The Yipiyuk would not let go. I whispered to him soft and low— The Yipiyuk would not...

    His poems make me happy.

    It's that simple, and yet so rare. I've loved them since I found Where The Sidewalk Ends in Books'a'Million at age eight. That book remains on my special shelf in the basement where I can read it any time I want.

    Genius

    I grew up listening to the wonderful songs he wrote for Doctor Hook. I`m only 20, but I bought a copy of an album call ``Bankrupt``at a charity shop when I was only 8, just because the guys on the cover looked so freaky. I still play that album all the time, although I own it on...
