A Memorial Haiku For Maurice Sendak - Poem by Chenou Liu

last rays of the sun...
dog-eared Where the Wild Things Are
spread out on my desk


Note: Maurice Sendak, widely considered the most important children's book artist of the 20th century, died at the age of 83 yesterday. His genre-breaking and career-making book, Where the Wild Things Are, was published in 1963, the year I was born.
