Summary

Sitting by the barbecuewaiting for sausages and hot dogs..........I see a tiny spider..........a silver speckglisteningat its mouth,climbing the invisible ladder--from "Dinner Together" by Diana RiveraThis anthology of poems by America's best poets glistens too, and offers its own silvery ladder for readers to climb.Liz Rosenberg, herself an accomplished poet, wanted to make contemporary poems for adults accessible to a broader readership. She searched for works which, in both feeling and expression, could reach from one age group to another. Then she asked the poets to write about the links between poetry and childhood, and to send photos that showed how they looked when they were young, and who they are today.The Invisible Ladder is a gift from everyone who contributed to it: a hand extended from those whose art is crafting words to a new generation of readers and writers.
