Water Skipper, Missoula, Montana

“Whenever we’re asked
If we walk upon water
We answer
            Of course.
To be sure.
It’s quite true….

Should we be questioned
On whether it’s easy
We answer
Quite easy.
A snap.
It’s a cinch….”

Paul Fleischman’s entire charming poem in the voice of water skippers is viewable here in a preview of his book “Joyful Noise, Poems for Two Voices.” Fleischman’s witty bug’s-eye-views, paired with Eric Beddows charming illustrations, will set your inner child to begging your adult self to ‘PleasePleasePlease go to the bookstore and buy this for me!’
