Being a huge fan of the poem Desiderata, I jumped at the chance to read more of Max Ehrmann's poetry. I soon realized that this collection and I are something of a mismatch. I don't believe in a personal God, but much of this poetry is theocentric. That threw me for a loop, because Ehrmann's most famous poem, Desiderata, only mentions God once, and then in passing. All of this doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy this volume. I also want to give a shout-out to the illustrator, Sally Sturmon, for an excellent job. The illustrations were all done in light grey, and added immensely to the ambiance of the poetry without being obtrusive.
