I thought this was a great concept for a book. It's a collection of poems inspired by twentieth-century works of art. Unfortunately, many of the poems did not really resonate for me. My favorites were "The Peacock," "A Word," and "River Song."

Sending in a box of RABCKs. I thought you might enjoy it! As always, though, feel free to release unread if it is not your thing. :)

The RABCK box arrived safely today; many thanks! I like the idea of poems themed on works of art; looks like an eclectic mix!

Later: Overall I think I enjoyed the artwork more than the poetry, though there were some really lovely poems that took unexpected inspiration from their respective works of art. I liked Jane Yolen's contribution, themed on "American Gothic", which began: "Do not dwell on the fork, the brooch at the throat, the gothic angel wing of window pointing toward a well-tended heaven..."

Perhaps my favorite entry here was Kristine O'Connell George's poem inspired by Niki Smith's "Fluttering Eyes"; it's "Pantoum for These Eyes", and uses the strongly-formal styling of a pantoum to focus in on the image of four different pairs of eyes sketched in smudgy charcoals.

I left this book, bagged against the elements, on a bench in the little gazebo on the common; hope someone enjoys it! (I saw some folks exploring the area and guessed they might be geocachers out to bag a Palindrome Day cache; perhaps one of them will find the book!)

I was wandering solo in Pelham just to take pics of the buildings and park when I found this book and one other in the gazebo, where it has apparently been for several months. It added a nice surprise to my day. I've enjoyed reading the poems and studying their relation to the artwork. I just released it in Candia NH.

Found on a warm Monday morning on a stroll with my dogs. I have read a few poems but still have a number of them to go!
