Boys And Girls, by James W. Foley

Boys And Girls
Boys And Girls, by James W. Foley

Many of these 114 poems were written from children’s points of view. I especially enjoyed reading “Old Hallowe’en Friends”. The poem is spoken by a spunky young girl who talks herself out of being frightened by a Jack ‘O Lantern.


I performed for you:
Track #96 Old Hallowe’en Friends
Track #99 Verses of a Little Child. Reading this one broke my heart
Track #110 To Children at the Hearth. I had my own children in mind, speaking to one at a time for each section
