Here are twenty-two "concrete" poems in motion! When it comes to poetry, why shouldn't words leave their sensible rows, like kids at recess, to run, jump and glide across the page? Of course playful poetry can get tricky, too. To share the fun, let your eyes play catch or tag or soccer. Follow the path of a Frisbee, paper airplane or firefly. Roll down a hill, blow a bubble or skip a stone. It's all here-from swings to slides, spring to fall, indoors and out. Told in the voices of children, these concrete poems rhyme and will be savored long after the trick is solved.
