    If I had read this slim volume of poetry without knowing who the author was, I still would have been able to guess they were written by Ray Bradbury even though I d never read any of Bradbury s poetry before and in fact didn t know he wrote enough to make a collection big enough to publish as a book The same themes of the universe being a place of limitless wonder, the human animal being a creature of boundless imagination, the mix of science and magic, and the nostalgia of an older, earlier Am If I had read this slim volume of poetry without knowing who the author was, I still would have been able to guess they were written by Ray Bradbury even though I d never read any of Bradbury s poetry before and in fact didn t know he wrote enough to make a collection big enough to publish as a book The same themes of the universe being a place of limitless wonder, the human animal being a creature of boundless imagination, the mix of science and magic, and the nostalgia of an older, earlier America that permeate so much of his prose, are so prominent in these poems The Haunted Computer and the Android Pope is only 98 pages long, but this book took me just as long to read as a much thicker novel, as each poem had be read slowly, and savored

    It s my preference to devour words when I read, so I generally am not a fan of poetry because it requires savoring to fully appreciate it Unless it s something like Walt Whitman s Leaves of Grass which make profound observations without need of a classical education to decipher it, the poetry has to be really good for me to slow down and enjoy the flavors Bradbury s poetry doesn t fit that caliber I much prefer his prose.That said, the best of them all was the absurd Ode to Ty Cobb, Who St It s my preference to devour words when I read, so I generally am not a fan of poetry because it requires savoring to fully appreciate it Unless it s something like Walt Whitman s Leaves of Grass which make profound observations without need of a classical education to decipher it, the poetry has to be really good for me to slow down and enjoy the flavors Bradbury s poetry doesn t fit that caliber I much prefer his prose.That said, the best of them all was the absurd Ode to Ty Cobb, Who Stole First Base from Second I also enjoyed The Past is the Only Dead Thing that Smells Sweet , You Can t Go Home Again, Not Even if you STAY there , The Bike Repairmen referencing the Wright Brothers , and Everybody s Got to Be Somewhere

    A very interesting look into the mind of Ray Bradbury While he has many poems dedicated to infinite space and wild beings, much of the material is based off his travels to ancient ruins or ruminations on childhood summers I digested this book over the course of two months, partaking with other reads The poems require care and attention, as the layers and imagery Bradbury evokes are substantial A must for Bradbury fans.

    Who knew Bradbury wrote poetry and loved Impressionist painters now having said that, I prefer his short stories and novels.Even so, some great poems to post for National Poetry Month They Have Not Seen the Stars , The East is Up both for astronomy classes , If Peaches Could Be Painters , Two Impressionists , Within a Summer Frame for art classrooms , and Satchmo Saved P.EThanks Ray

    I love Bradbury s poetic prose, but I must say I prefer his prose quite a bit over his actual poetry It s good, but not as great as I expected it to be when I first tried his poetry.
