Poems are read in a tune unlike that of stories, they have a special rhythm and rhyme. Poetry strikes special chords in our hearts, and leaves room for the imagination. We can learn poems off by heart, and carry them with us on our paths.
The collection of poetry before you is a treasury of rhyme, illustration and embroidery that decorate each poem, making it a triumph to the eyes and heart alike.
"Every good poem has an embedded secret that leads readers into a magical bubble, envelops them, and detaches them from reality, taking them somewhere else, a place full of emotion and hearts"
(Shlomit Cohen Asif)
