Poetry Friday Roundup is hosted today by Carol's Corner.

My offerings is a book written by poet, Allan Wolf, and illustrated by Tuesday Mourning, titled Immersed in Verse: an informative, slightly irreverent and totally tremendous guide to living the poet's life. This book works equally well as an introduction to poetry writing for the novice or as an inspiration for young poets grades 5-8. Wolf discusses the how and why of his own poetry as well as providing examples of work from Shakespeare to modern masters of verse. The book also includes a glossary, bibliography, and an index of the poets who are cited.

Friday's Famous First: Can you identify the title and author of this first line?
"Our land is alive, Esperanza." said Papa, taking her small hand as they walked through the gentle slopes of the vineyard.
