Miracles: Poems by Children of the English-speaking World.
Collected by Richard Lewis
A pioneering collection of nearly 200 poems that reveal the excitement, wonder, and rich imaginative power of children. The writers are all between the ages of five and thirteen and come from a wide variety of backgrounds – the United States, New Zealand, Ireland, Kenya, Uganda, Canada, England, Australia, India and the Philippines. But they have one thing in common: they are all children who, for the brief moment of a poem, have spoken with the intensity, vision and artistry of the poet.
