Leaves of November

Pale as the morning stars, the moments fall.

 across the world another’s hurting, i

 read more into the soaring leitmotiv

i is another,” I’ll again be whole,

 shine in the rising sun, November leaves.

— Sasha A. Palmer

If fresh, imaginative writing

“If fresh, imaginative writing and brilliantly animated pictures, all wonderfully syncopated, are the essence of an original picture book, then Mrs. Lovewright and Purrless Her Cat is indeed a dazzling example. With its dry, wry good humor and sympathetic understanding of human — and animal — misbehavior, the book fairly jumps from your hands for the wonder of it.”

— Maurice Sendak

A picture book, yes. But a children’s book? Age range: 4-8 years?

I wonder.
