for Mural on Second Avenue and Other City Poems by Lilian Moore and Roma Karas
Seventeen poems describe sights and sounds in a city neighborhood across the seasons. “Winter dark comes early / mixing afternoon / and night. / Soon / there’s a comma of a moon, / and each streetlight / along the / way / puts its period / to the end of the day.” (From “Winter Dark.”) Lillian Moore’s observant poems are filled with child-friendly imagery, while Roma Karas has created deeply hued oil paintings of inviting urban scenes. (Ages 7–10)
