A Poem For You

I'd recently read a wonderful publication called, 'Tales To Change The World' published in 2008, by Caseroom Press. I was really taken by a small poem in the book by Gianni Rodari. I read and re-read it - thinking that the poem speaks to all Grown Ups really - and interesting to find it in a book written for children. Although I do believe that Rodari wrote with adults in mind, following the philosophy that adults read aloud to their children. I typeset the Poem with the addition of ornaments and a border to contextualise the text in the prescribed rectangular format - paper size 20cms x 25cms and printed area of no bigger than
3 x 4 inches.
