Book review

Earlier this week, I mentioned about the book How I Discovered Poetry by Marilyn Nelson.  It was 50 poem biography of her childhood and adolescence during the 1950s.  She talked about her mom the school teacher, father in the military and a sister.  They would move from one place to the next being in a military family.  She expressed her experiences in a poetic manner which to me was unique.  She was able to talk about moments of her life through poetry than creating a memoir.  I would highly recommend this book and here is one poem to enjoy.
