  PSZC | Apr 17, 2019 |
This book is an anthology of scriptures from religions all over the world as well as individual poets such as Shakespeare, Basho, Blake, Whitman, Dickinson, Hopkins, Wallace Stevens, DH Lawrence, and Robinson Jeffers.

Worth the purchase price (in my case, fifty cents at the Martins Ferry Library sale) for this one poem by Wu-Men:

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter
If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life. ( )
