The Elf Poem

By Peter  Meinke

This delightful guide to writing and reading poems will appeal to children of all ages with charming drawings by Jeanne Clark Meinke and wise and winking elfish verse by Florida’s Poet Laureate, Peter Meinke. As the Elf advises:

 “ . . . when you write, write carefully,

With gaiety and grace,

For when you write a lovely poem

The world’s a better place.”

 

Peter Meinke is an author whose work has been published in The Atlantic, The New Yorker, The New Republic, Poetry, Tampa Review, eight books of the Pitt Poetry Series, and in two collections of fiction. He is Poet Laureate of Florida. Jeanne Clark Meinke is an artist whose drawings have appeared in The New Yorker, Gourmet, Yankee, and numerous other periodicals. Together they have collaborated on a previous children’s book and many other publications, including Lines from Neuchatel, Truth and Affection, The Shape of Poetry, and Lines from Wildwood Lane (a collection of her own drawings), all published by the University of Tampa Press.
