My Favorite Shel Silverstein Poems

Shel Silverstein is one of the things from my childhood that I’ve recently rediscovered. I can’t say I was a huge fan of his work when I was a kid, I mean I read Where The Sidewalk Ends and thoroughly enjoyed The Giving Tree but I didn’t really appreciate what he was trying to say until recently.This was largely in part to the fact that by the time he died I hadn’t yet learned to read. 236 more words

“Underneath my outside face

There’s a face that none can see

A little less smiley,

A little less sure,

But a whole lot more like me.”
