Beautifully illustrated nature anthology for children and other people
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 13 years ago
I check out a lot of poetry anthologies at the library but this one is really special. The illustrations (subtle, meditative) perfectly complement the poems which include: Summer Stars and Buffalo Dusk by Carl Sandburg, Egrets by Judith Wright, White Butterflies by Algernon Charles Swinburne, the Meadow Mouse by Theodore Roethke, Velvet Shoes by Elinor Wylie, The Bird of Night by Randall Jarrell, Overheard on a Saltmarsh by Harold Monro and many others. My only complaint is that the Harold Monro poem (which is my favorite) has been altered slightly which is quite often the case, I've found. I was going to photocopy and laminate my favorites from the library copy to put on my daughter's bedroom walls but there were so many I wanted that it was cheaper to just buy a "ruined" copy on the internet. I did that and the perfect, unhinged specimen came to my door. Thank you dear librarians for having the wisdom to have this book and for not stamping on the illustrations!
