Cynthia Rylant
I’m going to ‘fess right up and say that I am not much of a poetry reader, but I stumbled upon this book of poems by Cynthia Rylant. They make me smile. That’s it. I truly do not have any judgment on the reverence or irreverence of the subject matter – I simply liked the poems. With titles like, “God Got a Dog,” and “God Found Some Fudge,” these poems made my day a bit brighter. Incidentally, I rarely buy books (after all, I do work at the Public Library) but I did recently buy three copies of this book – one for my mother, one for my daughter and one for my priest. It’s hard to believe that I found one book that I believe all three of those people will like...go figure.
