    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...

    screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give em. Author: Shel Silverstein

    She had blue skin, And

    so did he. He kept it hid And so did she. They searched for blue Their whole life through, Then passed right by- And never knew. Shel Silverstein, Every Thing on It
