Poetry for Adults and Children
Poetry for Adults and Children brings together over one hundred of George Henry Kotz's fi nest verse of recent years. Th e subjects include our precious freedoms that we often take for granted, our unsung American heroes, belief in God, the fragility of life, irreplaceable friends and family, the glories of the natural world, the mysteries of the Earth, and the formidable power of nature. No matter what subject Mr. Kotz chooses to focus upon, he brings insight, perception, and humanity to each poem.
In "Words Becoming Poems" he describes the process of crafting verse to read aloud and perhaps subsequently publish: "My mind is filled with many words, / Like a large flock of migrating birds, / Looking for a safe place to rest, / To find a mate, then build a nest. / Once complete, the nest becomes a home, / When all combined will form a poem."
Poetry for Adults and Children is a captivating volume that will resonate with readers of all ages and remind us of our common bonds, our common concerns, and our common humanity in an often-difficult world.
