"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.

  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!
