    "How Many, How Much" How many slams in an old

    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

    “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...

    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

    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...

    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.
