Read full description of the books:



Every good poet has a toolkit in crafting poems that he or she draws from. Diane explores some of the more important tools in her latest book. For any poet learning his/her craft, or for any poetry reader for that matter, The Crafty Poet II is an excellent resource. Many of our country's finest poets are represented here, talking about their tools: anaphora(repetition in the first part of a line), vowels, consonants, the importance of stresses and line breaks in a poem, etc. For anyone who wants to delve deeper than the sheen of a poem's surface, Diane's books The Crafty Poet and The Crafty Poet II are musts for the bookshelf.

The biggest reason to read her books? They're fun. Poetry is fun. And the poems in The Crafty Poet II will leave you Wowed. They will jazz you up, compel you to write your own poems. There are many poems and prompts to get you started writing, using the same tools our finest poets use. Here is one of my favorite poems in the book, Dear Yellow Speed Bump by Susan Laughter Meyers:

Dear Yellow Speed Bump

One summer night a friend, on a dare,
played your game with other friends,
lying down across the narrow mountain road
and telling their best secrets. First kiss,

first time at sex. The game went smoothly,
I'm told, and so did the wine, but the secrets
were slow in coming, until one coaxed
the next, fact losing speed to fiction.

If only each day had its defining moment:
a subtle rise to catch a body off-guard
and lift it in serenity or jar it to attention
as we all wheel down the crowded road

trying to get somewhere, anywhere, fast,
when what we really want to do
is lay our burdens down on the loneliest
path and tell our only story to the stars.
