KIRKUS REVIEW

A useful and pleasant sheaf of poems by poets old and new for the important calendar days of the year a satisfying gift for the poetry lover and a helpful library aid for recitations and state occasions. The red letter days celebrated range from the religious festivals such as Christmas and Easter, national holidays as Washington's Birthday, Columbus Day, Inauguration Day, etc., to such days as Mother's Day, United Nations Day, Arbor Day and others. Also included are the State Songs of 41 of the 48 states, Alaska and Hawaii. Among the poets doing the celebrating are a weighty representation of the nineteenth century English poets, with some well-known American poets such as Whitman, Vachel Lindsay, William Rose Benet and others of regional reputation.
