Internation Poem Example

My children – my books. Dedicated to Stephen Mooser

Dedicated to Stephen Mooser,

 President of the internation  
Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, 
Los Angeles, California


My books live somewhere 

in distant California,

in city with the beautiful name «Los Angeles».

I sent them there to unfamiliar Mr. Mooser.

Now he is their new father.

I frequently see in my imagination

my books in their new country,

in their new house with new parents.

Probably my books – my children – are happy there:

They stand in book shelves.

Sunbeams smile at them,

Different people take them in their hands,

look at their pictures, and maybe even 


they read them sometimes!

But sometimes I am afraid that 

my books live 

like poor orphans:

They lay in darkness, among unread papers.

They are covered with dust

and nobody ever takes them in hand... 

But I am a big egoist,

I do not want to cry and worry.

Therefore I pretend: 

my children – my books

are happy in their new country,

in their new houses, with new parents.

And maybe, even,

somebody will read them,
