    I do think some of them are quite rude if I say so myself. Some of them are goog though: D.
    Is this poet still alive? ? ?

    Bobby Bare recorded a collection of Shel's songs, and won awards for Lullabyes, Legends and Lies. Shel did great things for children also. Made them think! Made us adults think in a humourous way with his other work. One of the Greatest of all time. Just ask John Cash. Johnny to the rest of us. Hef and the Playboy mansion...I don't know the details, but who would not find a better place to pass away with friends all around. One of the greatest POETS of our time.

Best Poem of Shel Silverstein

Where The Sidewalk Ends

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
and before the street begins,
and there the grass grows soft and white,
and there the sun burns crimson bright,
and there the moon-bird rests from his flight
to cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
and the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
we shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow
and watch where the chalk-white arrows go
to the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and ...

Hug O'War

I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.
