Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Years ago I bought this book, loaned it out, and it was never returned. I have thought of it VERY often. I just checked a bookstore today, and they didn't have it. As I remember, there are wonderful poems especially appropriate for Christmas and Easter. Thank you for carrying this book. It is a treasure.
