About the author (1988)

BARBARA ROGASKY owns hundreds of books of poetry and has loved poetry for as long as she can remember. "My older sister was a born teacher, and she introduced me to poetry very early. I love it because it is the closest thing to music. Only poetry and music can describe things as they really are".

Ms. Rogasky is the author of many highly acclaimed books for young readers, including Winter Poems, illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman, which received three starred reviews, was an ALA Notable Book, a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, and a Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books Blue Ribbon Book. She lives in a 175-year-old house in Thetford Hill, Vermont, amidst the spectacular fall foliage that was the inspiration for this book.
