    Enchanting poetry for all ages
    As a child of (almost) twelve, I read a most imaginative poem entitled, “The Laughing Willow” in a children’s magazine. Written by Ernestine Cobern Beyer (4 August 1893 – 13 Dec 1972), it tells of a misbehaving young willow tree, that will not weep despite the efforts of its melancholy family. That endearing poem is included in this book for children, which also offers instructions for teachers & students on the creative process of writing rhyming poetry. Compiled by Ernestine’s daughter, author Barbara Beyer Malley, it contains some (but not all) of the delightful works written by this award-winning yet little-known American treasure. The poetry of Ernestine Cobern Beyer stands up well to all the better-known rhyming poets of this day, as well as the classics of past masters, as her work is of the same caliber of excellence & timelessness. If you possess a strong sense of wonder & whimsy, (or want to:) I highly recommend it!
