Collection of Poems by Rita Taborda Duarte
Leaping from idea to idea, skipping from verse to verse, we will look at the world in reverse: we will talk about animals such as the giraffe or the flea, who lives in the dog’s fur, but also about the great menagerie that lives over there in the corner, amid the rhymes of poetry and our imagination. We will introduce you to the tiny animals, so small that you can’t really see them. And, always speaking in rhymes, boys and girls, everyone, you and me, we will have the chance to meet the elephanteetles, a mixture of elephants and beetles that can’t be seen with the naked eye, a pink shrimplet or a kangaraffe. Besides some of the animals you already know, we also want to introduce you to a number of other tiny creatures, who live calmly and quietly in our disordered thoughts. And that’s what we promise you – as fully and completely as we can!
Before and after the presentation, we will all make our own menagerie of all these animals and creatures, great and small, invented by Rita and Pedro, which you can then wear as a badge.
