As a practicing poet, I hold Mother Goose in the highest possible regard. I recently attended a reading by her, and the whole crowd of onlookers in the children’s section of the Barnes & Noble clapped when she read new pieces featuring familiar characters like Little Bo Peep and the lady who lived in a shoe.
I was overjoyed to see this amazing rendition of America’s greatest living poet on Brickshelf:
I love the nose, and the red hair is spot-on! I hope the Nobel Prize committee gets their act together and gives Goose the award she deserves for a lifetime of commitment to breaking new ground in contemporary poetry.
