Morton is the author of seven books and founder of Canada’s Random Acts of Poetry project.

“Selecting only a hundred from the thousands of wonderful poems was a challenge,” Jayne Ferrer, the book’s editor, said, “but given the last year and a half we’ve all been through, creating a book that could lift people’s spirits and put a smile on their face seemed important.”

Poems to Lift You Up and Make You Smile is available at bookstores, and Amazon.
