    1. I read this on dailyLit, where they sent me a poem a day until I was done It is an interesting way to read, though I m not sure I d like reading anything other than verse that way.Overall, this collection didn t do much for me A bunch of the poems are what you d expect coming out of his Wessex imagination grim There are a few occasional poems that are a bit better, but there isn t much I d want to commit to memory.

    2. To Cathy from LaRue with love May 1992 WIth a card at the poem, Confession To A Friend In Trouble Cath I like this one especially, LaRue.
