I shall want with the pure blue force

A friend lent me this collection of poetry when I had the realization that I didn't have to just read children's books to the baby.  All I needed was words that flowed somewhat rhythmically and kept my interest, and the babe would enjoy it too.  Another America offers each poem in both English and Spanish.  Many of the poems dealt with violence and were devastating.  (Those I avoided reading aloud.)  Others were touching observations on life.  One poem filled me with glee - Baby Blues - because it is just spot on perfection.  7/10.
