Rating: 4 out of 5

I came across “Ode to a pair of socks” in one of the “ten poems to” books. I thought it was charming. This book was mentioned in an article I saw suggesting books that were good company during lockdown. And I liked the idea of celebrating ordinary things. I feel that I’d like it as an idea at all times, but especially when at home with ordinary things around me.

I think I like the idea slightly more than the execution, though I did enjoy;
- ode to a pair of scissors
- ode to the artichoke
And I liked the dual language, and illustrations in this edition.
