Reading poetry aloud is one of the things I want to do with Tadoku friends.
Poetry for grown-ups is quite difficult to understand because of my incompetent English, but simply feeling its sound and rhythm of poetry gives me a tranquil mind.
This book is just wonderful!
People from across the US- a construction worker, kids, a teacher, an old lady-each speaks about the connection to the poem in the attached DVD.
Their comments are so wonderful and heartening, once you watch them, you feel like you're listening to the stories of your longtime friends.
The diversity of US is condensed into this poetry book.
