Word of the Day: Noise

on October 14, 2013

Paul Fleischman. Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices.

Written to be read aloud by two voices — sometimes alternating, sometimes simultaneous — here is a collection of irresistible poems that celebrate the insect world, from the short life of the mayfly to the love song of the book louse. Funny, sad, loud, and quiet, each of these poems resounds with a booming, boisterous, joyful noise.
