Publisher Comments:

When life becomes too much to handle, and your stressed beyond belief, find a quiet place, open the pages of this beautiful book, and let the calming power of poetry pour into your soul. What you will discover in this sublime collection are 100 poems that radiate peace, calm, and serenity. They have been chosen with care and thought from the abundant resources of American and international writing. Favorite poets of the past such as Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and Wallace Stevens stand alongside the newer voices of Robert Bly, Louise Glück, W.S.

Though they speak with different voices, the poets all invoke a spirit of calm-a spirit that travels through time and space, to soothe the mind and soul of the reader.
