Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689840802, Hardcover)

See heaven in a wildflower, praise all creatures great and small, and imagine angels with this glorious gathering of poems and prayers.

In these pages, sonnet, shape poem, song, and psalm from around the world are paired with paintings, prints, sculpture, and other works from the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. An Italian Renaissance painting of Tobias and the archangel echoes "The Lord Is My Shepherd"; three haiku grace a Japanese print of springtime bliss; and E. E. Cummings's I Thank You God" reflects an exuberant scene by Pablo Picasso.

Full of faith but nondenominational, I Imagine Angels is a classic children's bedtime volume as well as a gift book of joy and thanksgiving to be cherished by all ages.
