“A wonderful collection of classic and well known poetry by the great English poets whom folks from my ancient generation had to read, and often memorize. You’ll recognize many of the words etched into the vocabulary of the English speaking world. It never ceases to amaze me of the depth of feelings these great poets had about life, heaven, hell, love etc.
Every now and then it is refreshing to put down the heavy stuff and read a good poem or two.
It will soothe your mind and rest your soul.
Then you can go back to the heavy stuff of murder, mayhem, sex, violence and political corruption, knowing that at some time, someplace, somebody had better thoughts and shared them with us.” By tony from Philly
