Don't be discouraged to start a book
...even after reading the 2-star reviews.

Comments after my first reading of all the poems in the train:

I read all the poems…could not find any emotional ‘feeling’
with this collection.
I was so disappointed and was about to give this book a 2 score.
Then I told myself…go to bed…sleep on it.
Poet Laureate USA, graduate of Harvard,
…studied with the eminent Helen Vendler (see Google)
and professor at Princeton University
…Smith MUST be doing something right.
I’m just to blind to see it!
I start a re-read of each poem today!

Here are my thoughts after a 2nd reading!
