Dear Mark Doty from Iman


April 6, 2017

Dear Mark Doty,

My name is Iman. I am seven years old and I love poems. I like how poems rhyme and how they make me want to write my own. I really like your poem "Brian Age Seven," especially the part where you write about ice cream. I like the line "A towering ice cream, brown spheres teetering on their cone," because it talks about my favorite ice cream flavor, chocolate. One thing I would really like to write a poem about is cats.

Thank you for writing such a lovely poem!
