Think of a horseshoe as a piggy bank of luck.
When you bring it home, hang it prongs up.
Then leave it to fill, full and rich,
with no one looking.
When it’s time, the luck will spill.
Horseshoe and sixteen other free verse poems make up this picture book about superstitions. The poems and pictures are often strange, which seems oddly appropriate.
