The Sea Is Calling Me: Poems

From the publisher: Seagulls, sandcastles, seashells, and sips of ocean wash over the pages of this fine collection of sea poems. Hopkins has again gathered works from varied poets (E. E. Cummings, Karla Kuskin, Aileen Fisher, Myra Cohn Livingston), choosing them carefully like precious seashells. Many of the poems, published previously, are reprinted from collections now out of print. Several poems are printed here for the first time. The blue and black ink illustrations complement the poetry. Variously positioned scenes of children exploring sea life, waves crashing, and treasures from the sea work with the text to provide a spacious, unified whole.
