This exquisite collection of poetry features beloved favorites that have stood the test of time and are conveniently grouped in chapters.

And may there be no moaning of the bar,/When I put out to sea ..." 25 Poems for Families, like "I Remember, I remember,/The house where I was born/The little window where the sun/Came peeping in at morn ..." 20 Light Verse, some of which even children will love, like "Cats sleep fat and walk thin./Cats, when they sleep, slump;/When they wake, stretch and begin/Over, pulling their ribs in./Cats walk thin."

32 Poems of Love, including "How do Hove thee? Let me count the ways./I love thee to the depth and breadth and height/My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight/For the ends of Being and ideal Grace..." 12 Poems That Tell a Story, like "The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,/And the highwayman came riding -- /Riding -- riding -- /The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door." 42 Poems to Inspire, including "Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth/And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;/Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth/Of sunsplit clouds -- and done a hundred things ..."

This is a book not only to treasure, but also in which to rediscover all the wonder and beauty of poetry.
