really liked it

These poems are like nursery rhymes for adults. Becker writes lines full of limerick musicality to comfort and teach on themes that we adults face: the emotional pain of social isolation, the self-doubt and loneliness produced by mental illness and its disruptive effects, and most importantly the redemptive power of hope. And like nursery rhymes, they offer lessons in humility and perserverence without losing the reveling feel of a communal performance. This brings poetry back to its roots as song, and I appreciate Becker's commitment to rhyme. The first rule of poetry is that its sound must be what carries the meaning and gives it power to the reader. In this, Becker does an outstanding job.
