One Boy Told Me by Naomi Shihab Nye

Naomi screen capture Ah yes, it's true, kids do say the darndest things. But in the hands of poet Naomi Shihab Nye, those "darndest things" turn into poetic observations with the power to remind our adult minds of the pure wonder - and insight - that children possess.  Here is Naomi reading her poem "One Boy Told Me" which is a "found poem" of insights given to her by her son as he grew up. The recording is from The Poetry Foundation's "Poetry Everywhere" video series and the reading is from the Dodge Poetry Festival. BOA is proud to have published Naomi's collectionsRed Suitcase,  Fuel,  and, You & Yours. We are also thrilled to say that we will be publishing Naomi's next collection, Transfer, in September 2011. Enjoy the poem - and the dynamic reading by Naomi Shihab Nye! Click [Here] to watch Naomi Shihab Nye Reading "One Boy Told Me"
