"There is an echo for poetry..."

Sure feels good!  I entered the Poetry Friday Anthology for Middle School (PFAMS) giveaway, and the quote I chose got me a free copy of this book:

It arrived today, looks great, I cannot wait to read it.  Check it out, especially if you know a middle schooler, or two; or if you’re interested in writing poetry for that age.

Thank you very much, Sylvia and Janet!

And thank you so much, Petr, your thought on poetry brought me luck:

"На поэзию есть эхо: где-нибудь и когда-нибудь оно откликнется на её голос".

Вяземский П.А. (1792-1878)

Here's my English translation: 

"There is an echo for poetry: somewhere and sometime it will respond to her voice."

P.A.Vyazemskiy (1792-1878)

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur


  1. I LOVE the quote you chose! Thank-you for sharing this and Happy Easter to you and yours.

    1. Thank you, Janet! Happy Easter to you, too.

  2. And here's another toast to you for the quote you chose (from another Janet)! Enjoy--and thanks for spreading the word about our book! (And please take a look at the terrific videos of poems from the book at the No Water River blog this week ( especially love David Harrison's trombone video, Joy Acey's cross-cultural look at nonverbal gestures, and . . . well, if you have 5 minutes, you can look at them all!!)

    1. Thank you very much, Janet, for visiting, commenting and for the tip about the videos, I'll definitely check them out!
