Thank you for all the help finding this poem. I thought others would enjoy
it, too.

"I Love the Look of Words"
Maya Angelou 1993


Popcorn leaps, popping from the floor
of a hot black skillet
and into my mouth.
Black words leap,
snapping from the white
page. Rushing into my eyes. Sliding
into my brain which gobbles them
the way my tongue and teeth
chomp the buttered popcorn.

When I have stopped reading,
ideas from the words stay stuck
in my mind, like the sweet
smell of butter perfuming my
fingers long after the popcorn
is finished.
I love the book and the look of words
the weight of ideas that popped into my mind
I love the tracks
of new thinking in my mind.



For good ideas about reading for adults, teens and children, go to...


Libraries, corporations and individuals all joined together to explore and
protect print and other material that communicates the joy, power and wonder
of shared knowledge.


The digital counterpart of the ALA's review journal; read what's new, hot
and exciting in books and other mediums of publications.

Association for Library Services to Children: committed to the improvement
and extension of library services to children in all types of libraries; if
one child touches and reads just part of one book per day... the world is a
better place.




Young Adult Library Services Association: YALSA, acknowledging young adults'
unique needs and contributions to public libraries, is firmly committed to
high standards of library service for YAs. Don't wait for "Teen Read Week"
to discover the informational and recreational riches at the library!

shoot-from-the-hip teenager says about the books they're publishing for YAs
