Read in December, 2009

I purchased this book for more nostalgia value then anything else. My mother read from this book every Christmas Eve as we sat around the fireplace. I imagine the fact that she had to find poems that would appeal to my dad, my brother and I is the reason why I now associate The Charge of the Light Brigade and Casey at the Bat with Christmas.

And though I am aware of its maudlin qualities, I think Annie and Willie's Prayer will remain a Christmas staple for me.
