Come with Me: Poems for a Journeyby Naomi Shihab Nye
Synopses & Reviews
A journey can lead east and west, from north to south, up, down, over, under, in between, and next to.
A journey can last a minute, an hour, a year, a month, a lifetime.
A journey might be slow or fast or both. A journey might be shining. One journey could remind you of another one. Are you sliding? Stumbling? Floating?
Maybe it all depends on your point of view.
Where — and how — will these sixteen poems take you?Winner 2000 Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award
About the Author
Naomi Shihab Nye was so depressed on her twentieth birthday that she refused to celebrate. She thought childhood was now behind her (wrong). She called writer Jack Kerouac's widow, Stella, in Florida to say she was thinking of Jack (they have the same birthday). Stella invited her to come down and visit. Things improved from then on.
