When she was young, my daughter Kaitlyn asked what I liked about poetry. Gosh, kids ask questions that really make a gal think! If you think about children's books, they often sound a
bit like poetry. They have a rhythm to them that appeals to me (and I think appeals to kids too). Grown-up poems still tend to have this rhythm and they combine it with interesting themes
and thoughts. I guess I'm still a bit of a kid at heart!
