    There a couple poems in here that I really enjoyed, but the rest all seemed like exercises or experiments that don't quite come off right.

Not that I think there always needs to be a "point," but I didn't get much from these.

    A lovely book of poems. They seemed to be about ordinary things but when I finished they did not seem so ordinary after all.
