 This book is good for someone who thinks he/she "doesn't like poetry" — to discover that poetry is as diverse as is prose, or painting, or music, or whatever form a person uses to express oneself, and that it is the content of the thoughts that is most important, clothed in a form that enhances the ideas expressed.   If the form conceals rather than reveals the content, it is not good art.

This book includes appropriate quotes and 6 photos reflecting the themes.
The entire book is attractively printed on blue parchment paper.
