I’m surprised there hasn’t been more interest in this book. It’s full of parts of traditional poetry, which is to say that which rhymes, from past centuries mostly, but all with some leaning toward gardens. Considering how long it’s been since anyone has checked it out, I recommend letting it go. It has minimal value as a book of poetry because so many of the poems are quoted only in part.
