"In this fanciful tale depicting the ups and downs of a writer's journey, a child is horrified to discover that all the words from a most carefully written poem have escaped through a ripped pocket. The young writer tries to capture all the escaped words, but they whirl and swirl in the wind -- mingling in mid-air to make fun puns and rhymes and comically mixing up with the signs and activities of a busy city street. Finally managing to gather all the words, the child tries to put the pieces of the poem back together, only for the wind to blow the words away once again. Tired and spent, and caught in a rainstorm, the despairing writer thinks all is lost ... only to discover that the whole arduous process has ended up with the poem growing into something even better than first imagined. The clouds part, and the sun shines down on a new creation: a Poet-Tree."--
