About this campaign
POEMS ARE LIKE PEOPLE
like a mother
who needs to know
and ask for something
some stutter and fumble
searching for just
the right word
some never find it
some are better than others
-Annie Blankenship, age 12, in POETRY GIRL
POETRY GIRL© tells the story of next-door neighbors and friends, two girls who write poetry to deal with events and emotions, while growing up in a lively subdivision in the Sixties and Seventies. Kelly Kaufman is the youngest of four children whose father blames her for her mother’s illness. Annie Blankenship, the narrator, is an only child fascinated by the people and relationships around her. Kelly’s mom babysits Annie, who bears witness to it all and is compelled to tell Kelly’s story, along with her own. The girls’ adventures and trials are charming, poignant and sometimes heart-wrenching, but most of all real. Author Nancy J. Jones incorporates plenty of poems written by both girls to tell the stories that matter to them both. It’s a story that sweet, creative daughters and kind-hearted and protective mothers and fathers can share. Jones encourages mothers and daughters to give voice to their own poems and stories. AΩ
