We the People
PoemsBook - 2000
Listen up.Can you hear America talking?In these sixty-five first-person poems, Americans--some who really lived, some who might have lived--tell it like it is. In the process they illuminate and personify the American experience and the history of the United States. Here are Americans from five centuries, from all walks of life, from presidents to pioneers, from indentured servants to freedom fighters, from regular kids to astronauts...What are they talking about? What would you talk about?Perfect for sharing, for reading aloud, for reading alone, for performing, for memorizing, for investigating...here is a splendid collection of poems, an original and compelling chorus of voices. You can be sure that someone has something to say on each and every page. Listen up.
