Q: Activity: Spine Poetry. Create a line of poetry with your book spines (take a picture). Not feeling creative? Tell us about your favorite poem.



Since poems are really not my thing I'll just try to think of one instead. There are actually a couple but for the life of me I can't remember their titles. One is by Shell Silverstein, another by Tennyson, and the one that I do remember is Your Feet by Pablo Neruda:

When I cannot look at your face
I look at your feet.
Your feet of arched bone,
your hard little feet.
I know that they support you,
and that your sweet weight
rises upon them.
Your waist and your breasts,
the doubled purple
of your nipples,
the sockets of your eyes
that have just flown away,
your wide fruit mouth,
your red tresses,
my little tower.
But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.




Your favorite poem?
