Q: How did you get the idea for FEELING MAD, FEELING SAD, FEELING BAD, FEELING GLAD?
A: Everybody has these feelings. In my school visits, I encourage children to write about their feelings. I read them one of my short poems from my book. Hope Wurmfeld’s beautiful photographs add just the right mood.
I sit alone in the early morning
And watch the waves wash the sand.
The sun comes up.
I throw my arms around the sun.
My arms just fit the sun’s circle.
But the sea is too big to hug.
