This book was published in 1922 and has about 100 poems. The index lists each one but it isn't active. The writer of the book's intro calls Le Gallienne "the most famous young writer of the day," which I was glad to read because this is the 4th book of his I've read and I've liked them all.
The first third of this book is entirely love poems, and I found them pretty good, though a little sappy. After that he expands into other subjects- nature, religion, society or anything else that pops into his head about which he feels like writing a poem.
The only thing I can whine about is that his writing is fairly simple and doesn't require much thinking. He puts everything right on the surface where it is easily found and absorbed.
If you like love poetry you should definitely read the first third of this book. If not, start one-third of the way through for a variety of subjects.
