It's World Poetry Day so naturally today's video lunch tribute goes to the inimitable author / poet / songwriter Shel Silverstein whose Light in the Attic, Where the Sidewalk Ends and The Giving Tree (not to mention the The Great Smoke Off and A Boy Named Sue) shaped the cadence and imagination of countless generations.
