Wonderful Poetry Books
Hello, friends. What are you reading these days? My reading fare has taken a sharp turn over the past month. I have returned to one of those deeps roots of my beginning, that being poetry. Having done so, I have begun reading poetry in earnest. I have recently begun collecting my library of poems and poets of which I have developed an interest. These poets include the well know names of Keats, Shelly, Frost, and Henery David Thoreau, and of course, Edger Allen Poe. There are also books of haunted and bewitching themes, as well as Zen poems by the masters of that discipline. There are a host of other titles as well.
Now, let me put you onto a trail that some may find delightful. Not long ago I purchased a most unique volume called 'Poems of Mourning'. And yes, it is a small volume dedicated to mourning for the dead. The book is about six inches in length, clothbound, and with a ribbon marker and dust cover. The publisher is 'Everyman's Library Pocket Poets'. These great little books are well-bound, handsome, and exquisitely handy given their small size. Even so, the print is easily readable. Just go to Amazon and type in the publisher's name for a listing of all they have to offer. The price is most reasonable, about $12.00 to $14.00 depending on the book.
If you haven't heard of these I trust you will look them over. I feel certain you will not be disappointed.
