Valentines: Poems

Ted Kooser, Author, Robert Hanna, Illustrator . Univ. of Nebraska $14.95 (47p) ISBN 978-0-8032-1770-6

In 1986, Kooser (U.S. poet laureate 2004–2006) started a tradition. He sent a Valentine's Day poem on a postcard to 50 women. Over the past 30 years, he's sent his annual poem to an increasing number of women (in 2007 there were 2,600 recipients). This collection presents all the postcard poems plus one more, dedicated to Kooser's wife, Kathleen. Accompanied by drawings by Robert Hanna, each poem is a unique snapshot of love. The poet says it best himself: “all my life, I have wanted nothing so much as the love of women.” (Feb.)
