This collection of poetry by Garrison Kellor is a delight. It inculdes some of the 1,000 and more poems read on his radio show in the US and all of them linger in the ear - try reading them aloud.
As a collection it is eclectic and often amusing, sometimes surprising, and always entertaining.
I personally like the choice of poems in his other collection ( Good poems for hard times) even better which is why this book is rated one star short of perfection!

An interesting division of poems, although at times the poems within the section didn't quite reflect the respective section title.

An anthology containing some poems I couldn't relate to, some good poems and some beautiful poems, outstanding in their simplicity and imagery, such as "When one has lived a long time alone" by Galway Kinnell (echoed with mysticism); "Rain Travel" by WS Merwin (vivid imagery of lying awake listening to the night time rain) and "The Peace of Wild Things" by Wendell Berry (expressing a deeply spiritual communion with nature) were particular favourites.

A nice addition to my poetry collection.
