Review by

A collection of poems intended to be read aloud daily. This good idea is neatly implemented although I could argue with some selections. All anthologies are personal selections so it is harsh to criticise this for not being my own choices but this is my party and I'll carp if I want to.

A great collection of poems. If you don't read much poetry you'll be surprised how many lines you recognize.
