The popular children poet that looks likes he's more fitting in a biker gang.
Wikipedia Bio:
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shel_Silverstein
My Thoughts:
Shel Silverstein was my second introduction to poetry, (my first being the almighty Dr. Suess)
I remember days at elementary school where arguments sprung about over his poetry books.
The Giving Tree, his most famous poem, was (and still) a powerful poem for me.
Shel Silverstein was truly one of a kind. Though being a children's poet, his works appealed to everyone.
As a forever remembered figure in the poetry world, his works continue to inspire the youth today.

He might be an ex-biker with those looks, just add a longer beard and sunglasses and there ya go!

I've never heard of this guy, although I probably have read some of his work before.

The first book my uncle got for me was Falling Up. The picture on the back makes him look more like a pirate than a guy who should be writing books for kids... Shocked
