This volume is an anthology of poems in English by children and edited by Gieve Patel.
This collection of poems written by students between the ages of twelve and eighteen is distinguished by its pervasive tone at full-grown awareness. The poems come from a workshop conducted by well-known writer Gieve Patel over a period of a decade. They deal with a wide variety of experiences, from a moving camaraderie to violent aggression, from a deep love and understanding of nature to a concern for its fate in today's world. There are poems here also about friends, animals, neighbors, teachers, lovers and mothers.
