Favorite poets, beloved verses. The beautiful poems in this collection express the incredible, the joyous, the heartbreaking moments that make up the very pulse of life. All these works have the power to reflect our own emotions and experiences: the fragility of youth and beauty in “Ode to a Grecian Urn,” the challenge of maintaining one’s convictions in “If,” the longing for home in “My Heart’s in the Highlands,” the pain of losing a child in “On My First Son.” Enjoy the varied cadences and illuminating perceptions of Shakespeare, Shelley, John Donne, Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Thoreau, William Blake, Emily Dickinson, and many others.
