Read in December, 1996

My mom first gave me this back in college when I was totally stressed about finals. I was actually really turned off from poetry in high school; if the poems they teach don't kill you, the student's interpretations will. Somehow I always end up re-reading this every couple of months. My favorite poem in here is, "The Light of Stars"...

"Oh, fear not in a world like this,
And thou shall know erelong,
Know how sublime a thing it is
To suffer and be strong."
