African acrostics : a word in edgeways by Avis Harley( Book )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 693 libraries worldwide
Inside every acrostic is a secret message, often lurking in the first letter of each line (read top to bottom). But look out! These acrostics not only follow their subjects to Africa, but they also take the form to a whole new level. Here you'll find the elusive double acrostic (in which the first and last letters of each line spell a message), the cross acrostic (in which the message is read diagonally), and the multiple acrostic (see it to believe it), not to mention lions, zebras, crocodiles, hippos, leopards, and elephants. Oh, my! Illustrated with gorgeous full-color photographs, this collection is sure to send poetry buffs and animal lovers on an armchair safari they'll never forget

The monarch's progress : poems with wings by Avis Harley( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 376 libraries worldwide
"Why are butterflies so universally loved? Is it the dazzling colors within exquisite winged living art? Is it the miracle of change that fascinates us--that wonderful metamorphosis from tiny egg to brilliant insect? Avis Harley explores these questions and many others that have captivated humans throughout history. Eighteen structured poems--haiku, sonnets, cinquain, limerick, and other forms--examine how monarch butterflies taste with their feet, migrate 2,500 miles every year, and cover entire forest groves when they rest. A 'Small Matters' section at the back explains the facts and science in the poems."--Publisher description
