Once I spoke the language of the flowers,
Once I understood each word the caterpillar said,
Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings,
And shared a conversation with the housefly
in my bed.
Once I heard and answered all the questions
of the crickets,
And joined the crying of each falling dying
flake of snow,
Once I spoke the language of the flowers. . . .
How did it go?
How did it go?

He's always been one of my favorite poets and I read his books from an early age. He's written great poetry for kids and his words had meaning underneath his humor.

I love his prose and poetry. I really admire the way he writes so that you can get something from it no matter what your age.
