Circuses in the Forests.

Poets House is a national library in New York City that offers visitors the chance "to step into the living tradition of poetry." Its Children's Room features typewriters (not computers or iPads) for aspiring poets to record their thoughts, and the library's Twitter feed features snippets of verse written by city schoolchildren. I've clipped a few of my favorite lines; perhaps not surprisingly, seven of the eight involve animals.

Thank you to my favorite librarian, Natalie, for the introduction.
