KIRKUS REVIEW

Honey and , octogenarian Sandburg's latest collection of verse, should prove a flag-waving event. What can be said about it is only what has already been said, except that these pieces are reflective of Sandburg's Elder Muse-ing style and are concerned largely with love, both the romantic and democratic variety. There are long poems and four-liners, some sad, a few tart, almost all imagistic in technique, didactic in temper and affirmative in spirit. Generally, more private than public, the poems in one muted shape or another, still embody the American credo, a Lincolnesque humanism.
