Summary

A GREAT READ  FOR THE ROMANTIC SOULS OF THIS WORLD, especially for St. Valentine’s day!

The verse in this volume were  selected from works that had appeared in various periodicals of the time, LIFE, TRUTH, TOWN TOPICS, VOGUE, and MUNSEY'S MAGAZINE during the five years 1893-1898, the 19th C’s Romantic period,  and whose editors kindly gave Tom Hall permission to republish them. So popular was this collection of poetry, that it had at least six print runs.

This volume is made up of two parts. The first contains the more serious poetry of the heart and the second part more light hearted and sometimes comical poems about love. However, of special mention are “In Old Madrid” and on amore light hearted note “A Slight Surprise”. But these are not just poems for the young, for love belongs to all ages. Here we recommend “Love’s Return” about a grey haired man whose heart is bursting because he has found love again at a later stage in life; and never fear , if you have been rejected or if your heart has been broken by a love lost to another, there is a poem for you too. Here we recommend “Hard Hit”, “Rejected” and “What It Is”.
We ask you to be aware that these poems were penned over one hundred years ago and the protocols for dating and courting in the 19th C. were vastly different to those of today. So, when reading these poems to your loved one, think Jane Austen, Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet and you’re sure to deliver the prose with all the meaning intended and with a degree of elegance missing from the current age. Oh, don’t forget the chocolates, roses and champagne, for they, with the reciting of a romantic poem are sure to win over an unsure heart.

NOTE: The contents of this volume are not related to the 1920 silent movie, of a similar name, neither is it related to the 1981 novel, also of a similar name. It is quite simply a collection of ninety-one enjoyable, short poems which relate to matters of the heart. Some are solemn and others more jovial in nature, and, with the exception of one or two, all are one page or less in length which makes for an easy and pleasant read.

This volume has been especially produced to help raise funds for that charity of charities. So buy a copy and be assured that 10% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to a worthwhile cause.

    Newbery Honor Book: “Delightful reading. An hour spent with the Moffats is fun for all ages.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)   You’ve never met anyone quite like Rufus Moffat. He gets things done—but he gets them done his way.   When he wants to check out library books, Rufus teaches himself to write...even though he doesn't yet know how to read. When food is scarce, he plants some special “Rufus beans” that actually grow . . . despite his digging them up every day to check on them. And Rufus has friends that other people don’t even know exist! He discovers the only invisible piano player in town, has his own personal flying horse for a day, and tours town with the Cardboard Boy, his dearest friend—and enemy.   Rufus isn’t just the youngest Moffat, he's also the cleverest, the funniest, and the most unforgettable, in this classic series about a single-parent family in WWI-era Connecticut praised for its “abundant humor” (Horn Book Magazine).   “Rufus M. is . . . unbeatable.” —The New Yorker   “[The Moffats are] as nice a group as ever pulled together through hard times.” —The New York Times Book Review

    A captivating, eco-conscious story about water-wasting mermaids—and the basis for the award-winning, stop-motion animated short film.  Mermaids on Mars is a sweet tale that educates children on the importance of water conservation. Beautifully illustrated, it includes simple water-saving tips that our Martian mermaid friends want to share with kids all over the world—after ignoring them on their own home planet and learning a most important lesson. Their story and their wisdom will help everyone save Earth’s most precious resource.   “A whimsical story about mermaids—when they lived on Mars. Mermaids thrived in Mars’ crater pools and used up all of the water resources, splashing around. Thanks to a very cool rocket ship, the mermaids traveled to Earth and settled in our oceans. Mermaids also helps children learn the importance of water conservation.” —MySocialGoodNews.com   “Author Nancy Guettier teaches a valuable lesson to children to cherish the resources around them and to use and consume wisely. It’s a perfect lesson for the modern child. Illustrator Tina Cash-Walsh draws beautifully and will captivate the reader.” —TheBabySpot.ca   “This book helps explain that we don’t need to excessively waste water when going potty or when brushing our teeth . . . We love the bright colors and whimsical illustrations in this book.” —The Naptime Reviewer   “I applaud Nancy Guettier for writing books that have an educational bent to them. Any book that teaches conservation to kids definitely has a leg up on the competition in my mind. Mermaids on Mars is definitely a solid kids book with a good lesson behind it.” —Sci-Fi & Scary
