Helen Puciloski - As soon as I learned to write in the first grade, I did. And I still do. I like the way William Stafford puts it, "Everyone is born a poet - a person discovering the way words sound and work, caring and delighting in words. I just kept on doing what everyone starts out doing. The real question is: Why did other people stop?"
