Last week I mentioned that I went to our Oostburg Public Library.
One of the books I borrowed is BEST LOVED POEMS TO READ AGAIN & AGAIN The Most Moving Verses in the English Language, Compiled by Mary Sanford Laurence (1991, Galahad Books, New York City; Copyright 1979 by Hart Associates).
I am enjoying the collection so much, and am reading many poems aloud. Some of the poets in the book are Joyce Kilmer (“Trees”), John Keats (“A Thing of Beauty”), Emily Dickinson (“If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking”), and so many more – including Author Unknown.
From Mary Sanford Laurence’s Foreword: “Poetry satisfies our longing for beauty and for inspiration” (page 23).
