What a delightful collection of poems by an incredible author.  Come on in and celebrate the joys of being young and the joys of growing up.

Let me tell you
where things stand.
Each day is like fruit
resting ripe in my hand.
Will I sample its sweetness?
Will I toss it away?
Will I let you steal it?
I got one thing to say:
Don't try it,
Don't try it.
