POEMS

1. [Biblio-attack!]

Books to the left of me!
Books to the right of me!
I'm being attacked
in the library!

2.. (Kid's Poems for Spring]

Wake up! Wake up!
you sleepy plants,

Doff the winter night shirts.
Don your summer green shifts.
Don your budding gloves

Wake up! Wake up!
Spring is ringing it's clock!

3.[ Architectural Surrealism]

stairs to nowhere
stairs to nowhere
why would he build
stairs to nowhere

step after step
up in the air
why would he build
stairs to nowhere

4. [Kid's poem inspired by a line from The Secret Garden]

There'll be no going out today.
The world is full of rain
and thunder roaring like a wolf.
There'll be no going out today.

There'll be no going out today.
Inside we'll have to play.
The fire crackles and the candles flicker.
Let's eat some soup with bread and butter
and gather round to play a game.
There'll be no going out today.

There'll be no going out today.
Even the sun has gone away.
I'm tired and sleepy and ready for bed.
I'll say my prayers and rest my head,
and perhaps tomorrow it'll be clear again.
There'll be no going out today.

5.

Look at that
pencil and pen.
How many drawings
are left in them?

SAYINGS

On the origin of life: Life was the best response to the environment, not the most unlikely, not a fluke.

Why does the media stress social issues when it talks about the poor but economic issues when it talks about the rich?

On Most Modern Art: Yes this is art - con art

The edge of science has very little light.
