I look for poetry in English because it's the only language I read.
Frankly, writing poetry for children is plain old fun, and I consider myself blessed to have such a delightful career.
Writing gives me the opportunity to explore ideas, play with language, solve problems, use my imagination, and draw on my own childhood.
Children seem naturally drawn to poetry - it's some combination of the rhyme, rhythm, and the words themselves.
Poetry seems to sink into us the way prose doesn't. I can still quote verses I learned when I was very young, but I have trouble remembering one line of a novel I just finished reading.
We all need ways to express ourselves, and poetry is one of mine.
Otherwise I don't read much adult poetry at all, because I'm not smart enough and mostly I don't get it.
Then I decided to draw from and on my own imagination, and everything came out perfect.
