Poems Every Child Should Know goodreads

Mary E. Burt

I fancied reading some more poetry, because I'm a bit lacking in some of the classics, and there this was in feedbooks. They do a good job, Feedbooks, in taking Project Gutenberg texts and making them nicely formatted epubs. Anyway, this has a load of terrible old tosh, and a bunch of irritating comments from Burt about some schoolkid who constantly recited one poem or another, marbled throughout with some real marvels which actually have stood the test of time. The Assyrian did indeed come down like a wolf on the fold.
