I loved that this book was a light fun read, which made it great for bedtime. Since the poems are broken up into different categories (nature, religion, humor), it would also be good for picking the right poem at the right time. Personal favorites include "I Shall Paint My Nails Red" (which found its way into a group interpretation piece this year), and the various selections from Robert Louis Stevenson's Child's Garden of Verse (which I really feel I should read straight through now).

The edition’s merit lies in its attempt to raise a person’s spirit with poetry touching you with nature, nonsense poems, insights on spirituality and with poets who talked about meeting down-hearted people and needing to cheer them up. I found myself laughing many times, read more :

I love the way this book is organized! A fun and varied collection that will make you smile, as it promises.

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of poetry. There were quite a few old favorites, and several new finds. It's the sort of collection I would like to read again to find the kind of poetry I most enjoy.

I found some of the poems to be the antithesis of the title (Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry Be Happy"??? Not a poem! And won't lift my spirits!) but several more were new and wonderful to me. Loving Rita Dove.

"Some may ask where I get the authority to compile such a work, and attach such lofty claims to it. I have no advanced business degrees myself, but I have labored in an assortment of metaphorical vineyards over the course of the past four decades, from entry level to senior management positions, in government and in the private sector, and I have paid attention to the commonalities and repetitive ...more
