Synopsis

The World is Sweet by Valerie Bloom

Time's a bird, which leaves its footprints At the corners of your eyes, Time's a jockey, racing horses, The sun and moon across the skies. Time's a thief, stealing your beauty, Leaving you with tears and sighs, But you waste time trying to catch him, Time's a bird and Time just flies. A stunning first ever collection of new poems from the renowned performance poet Valerie Bloom. Her poetry is beautifully crafted yet full of energy - her subjects range from the philosophical, to taking sandwiches to school and being afraid of ghosts. Her mixed use of standard English and dialect is a delight to read and hear. Children love reading and listening to her work!
