I enjoyed this collection of poems. Many were familiar already, but this was a nice, quick review of some classics. Favorite poems in this book included ones by Walt Whitman, Lewis Carroll, and Robert Frost. ( )

I opened the book to a random page and Sara Teasdale's The Kiss floored me. Flipping through the book reveals many standards--why can I never read Richard Corey without wanting to be Richard Corey?--and a number of poems I haven't seen before. The Kiss alone made it worth the purchase. ( )
