Poetry Friday



Poetry Friday is hosted today by The Poem Farm.


Poetry Friday -- "The Moon" by Robert Louis Stevenson with pictures by Tracey Campbell Pearson.


Pearson's watercolor paintings provide readers with a contemporary feel for this 1885 classic verse when she interprets the poem as a visual story a father and son's late night adventure where they discover that the ordinary daytime world is infused with mystery as they follow the moonlight across land and water.

Ooh, I do so adore these one-poem books. Thank you for bringing this one to all of our attention. My apologies for the late comment - I had to travel unexpectedly. Happy poetry week! a.
