    If children's literature is typically ignored--though this is less true than it once was--children's poetry is virtually unimagined by those not obessively devoted to the genre as a whole. Karla Kuskin is one of my favorite poets for her brief and vivid pieces, so evocative for me. 


    I am very fond of bugs.

    I kiss them.

    And I give them hugs.
