about

**The lyrical poems of award-winning author Nancy Willard celebrate the magic of life     **

Nancy Willard, who was the first recipient of a Newbery Medal for a volume of poetry, displays her versatility in these companion collections.

Divided into five sections, *Water Walker *blends the mundane with the mystical. From sleeping fish to Marco Polo to a tortoise who dispenses unique advice to a bride on her wedding day, these poems integrate fables, nursery rhymes, hymns, and songs.

In 19 Masks for the Naked Poet, the human soul reveals itself, as we remove the disguises that bind (and blind) us to everyday life. Fanciful images of nature—dozing bees, green lions—infuse this collection. Doors become mirrors and husbands float above their marital beds as Willard explores themes of family, love, spirituality, politics, and immortality. Her “poet” experiences everything from the sacred to the profane, from photographing his heart to meeting God in creations that are enchanting and surreal.     

This ebook includes illustrations by Regina Shekerjian.
