1923. A collection of verse by Untermeyer who wrote, edited or translated over one hundred books including several volumes of his own poetry. He held the post of Poet in Residence at the University of Michigan, University of Kansas City and Iowa State College. Untermeyer writes in the Introduction: Perhaps you're especially fond of music. Then you will read many of these verses for the sheer sound of them: for the throb and beat of the rhymes, for the little, tinkling feet that tap their toes to an even measure, for the tunes that shape themselves as the words sing out with even more melody than meaning...Most of the poems in this book were written by living poets-and so it is this singing world-your world as well as theirs-that is between these covers. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.… (more)
