Is it sometimes best not to confess one‘s love but to keep it a secret? In this poem Blake explains why sometimes it‘s better to have loved and kept quiet than to tell your affections. 🤷‍♀️

TheSpineView Not sure I agree with his view. Regardless, I like the poem. 😊 2h

I absolutely love love love this book... so much that I had to take pictures for myself of a few of the poems because they were completely relatable to what I've been through. Loved the illustrations throughout the book. I definitely pleasantly surprised because I thought the book was about monsters but actually about going through love and the messy breakup of it. A must read for anyone who is going through a break up or divorce.

The Undefeated by Kwame Alexander published in 2019 was so heartfelt and such an amazing book to read. Originally performed for ESPN's The Undefeated, this poem is a love letter to black life in the United States. It highlights the unspeakable trauma of slavery, the faith and fire of the civil rights movement, and the grit, passion, and perseverance of some of the world's greatest heroes. I loved this book it was truly so amazing!

Willie took out his pen and his notes. He sat down and looked at the words...and shaped them into poems.

I enjoyed the illustrations in this book, it was almost like a collage of pictures. I thought it was very fun and creative.

This book is about William Carlos Williams and how he wrote his poems. His words gave him freedom and peace but he also knew he needed to earn money to live. So he went to medical school and became a doctor but never stopped writing poetry.
