Book Description:
These wonderful, whimsical poems from the incomparable Walter de la Mare describe the bliss of childhood, explore the marvel of a child's imagination and portray the intriguing landscapes of existences both lived and imagined by a young mind in a magical kingdom located somewhere between daydream and caprice.
In these poems we experience aspects of a reality unencumbered by concern, unhindered by anxiety, and share an imagination free to wander, ponder, contemplate, envision and express itself in a marvelous mosaic of impression, inspiration and introspection.
The wisdom and wonder of childhood is brought to life in these poems by an expert in the field of the fancy and fanciful. In the words of Walter de la Mare himself, these are poems that "echo the far-away calling of children, Magic hath stolen away." - Summary by Bruce Kachuk
