One of my favorite poets, from when I was younger, is Robert Frost. Poetry for Young People: Robert Frost is a collection of poems that is edited by Gary D. Schmidt. Robert Frost was an American poet who captured the beauty of nature. The book includes a short biography and then is organized by poems for every season. Of course the collection includes well loved poems such as: "The Road Not Taken."
Everyone has probably recited a poem about love at some time in their lives. If nothing else, "Roses are Red, Violets are Blue...." has graced a Mother's Day card. Dizzy in Your Eyes: Poems About Love is written by Pat Mora. She explores the many facets of love in this collection of fifty poems. Some are also presented in Spanish.
The final book I want to mention is not a collection of poetry, but a book about writing. Painless Poetry is written by Mary Elizabeth. The book promises that poetry will not be dull and difficult and it will not hurt at all. The book covers such topics as; literary elements, sounds, rhythms, and forms. This might be just the book to get your creative juices flowing.
