This is the beginnings of a collection of poems, most fairly short, crisp, and clearly written. Many are in the public domain, some are anonymous, and the rest have been selected from the best of the hundreds of modern 21st century ppoets who haven freely donated their work.

I have made minor edits here and tthere, without comment, to some well-known poets work. Frost's “Beech Tree” is an example. My edits are transparents. You can easily find them!.

Before this collecton is ever sold, I will only to do if I ca find voluneers to create an audio CD collection and agree that 100.0% of any profits go to the followiing charitable instutions:
