I encountered this anthology in a library, and with skepticism, decided to peruse it’s pages. I’m so glad I did. I found old favorites, ones by poets I haven’t heard of, as well as interesting finds written by authors whom I didn’t know wrote poetry (Robert Louis Stevenson – who knew?).

The anthology is divided into five themes (each including a personal introduction by Caroline Kennedy):

AMERICA: A few patriotic works here. What surprised me was finding a reflection of arrogance in the works of Robert Frost when juxtaposed with the work of Langston Hughes – both seeing America rather differently.

FIRST POEMS: This section was the most fun to read. I’ve come across poems I’ve learned as a child, and was delighted to find Haikus by Basho that brought to mind the joy children can find in simple things. Robert Louis Stevenson’s works were a surprisingly fun find, bringing back to mind the joys (and in one case, a “tragedy”) of summer as a child. “Some Keep The Sabbath by Going to Church” by Emily Dickinson was a delightfully irreverent read.

ADVENTURE: I’ve found “Sea Fever” by John Masefield best reflected the theme in this section.

ROMANCE AND LOVE: “She walks in beauty…..” Need I say more?

REFLECTION: This section appeared the most personal to Kennedy, and the saddest to read, beginning with Ms. Kennedy’s introduction. There were many a poem that cut like a knife when reading through the lens of the memory of the horrific losses experienced by her family. Hopeful poems were included as well.

IN HER OWN WORDS: This section is made up entirely of the work of Ms. Kennedy’s beloved mother, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (by whom Kennedy has entitled this anthology). It includes sage advice to young readers, and a few of Kennedy-Onassis' very own poetry. I especially enjoyed “Thoughts” (written when she was a Bouvier) as well as “Meanwhile in Massachussetts” about her husband, President John F. Kennedy.

Copies are sadly out of print. I was able to buy a used copy through Amazon for very little.

I recommend this anthology to one who is new to poetry, and to the jaded who may find joy in revisiting classic works.

Thank you, Caroline, for reminding us once more of your amazing Mother and your family, of all that was good and nobel in your life, of beauty, of love.
Your Mother and family taught you well, and you have passed on to us the lessons of your youth. This book is not large, small enough to tuck into
a purse or a compartment, to leave on your nightstand or in your car so that you can pick it up and read on a moment's notice, when the need for
inspiration or humor or love overcomes you. It is filled, filled, with stories and poems so dearly loved by all that you will be grateful to find
them compiled so lovingly by the daughter of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. This is my absolute favorite book to give as a small thank you,
for birthdays, holidays, celebrations. Better still, I keep copies close by as gifts to myself!

There are some short poems in this book that are very enjoyable. The poems by Edna St Vincent Millay and Emily Dickinson are great examples. I was drawn to Hope Is The Thing with Feathers I loved the interesting title, but I also appreciated the wonderful metaphor in the poem about what hope is. I loved Portrait By a Neighbor by Edna St Vincent Millay. Her poems exemplify that mere observations and perceptions can be very poetic.

I loved the poem Ithaca because it is such a motivational poem. It has wonderful vivid images. This kind of poem can motivate people to go out and seek their own adventure Another motivational poem is Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening. The last stanza of the poem was quoted by President Kennedy in his speeches. It is a great poem about determination and staying true to your goals.

Loss can be very poetic. This is evident in another one of my favorite poems in this book Annabelle Lee. It is a lovely lyrical poem about losing the love of one's life. It is about loving a person so much in life that you can't bear to live without them after they are gone.

The section in the book written by Jacqueline O herself is noteworthy. The essay about The Books I Read When I was young is very inspring. Jackie O's poem about her husband Meanwhile in Massachusetts is very reflective and prophetic.

This is one of the best books I have read all year.

Since poetry and a love of literature were passions of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, it is a touching memorial to her life that daughter Caroline has chosen to share her mother's favorite works of poetry. Each section begins with an introduction from Caroline that relates some interesting information about Jackie, how she raised her children, her spirit of adventure, her trips into imaginary places, and her belief in the importance of love and family. Poetry was a daily part of life in the Kennedy home and you'll find interesting information on the poetry scrapbooks that Jackie encouraged her children to keep, the poems they memorized for family gatherings, and more.
Although most of the poems contained in this volume may be already familiar to the seasoned reader, you will find three original poems by Jackie herself as well as an essay taken from a book she helped put together. From the poem Robert Frost read at JFK's inauguration to Rose Kennedy's favorite she recited often, you'll enjoy this trip back to Camelot. My personal favorite that I was so happy to find included in this volume was the beautiful "Ithaca" by Constantine P. Cavafy. This, as you may recall, was the poem Jackie's friend Maurice Tempelsman read at her funeral. Its message of enjoying the journey, the "beautiful voyage" seems to exemplify more than any the private lady we all admired.

I have given this collection of poems to a number of friends when they become parents, as I am a lover of classic and touching poetry. To me, it is a very important foundation for all children’s education, and often overlooked with the plethora of video and more current books.
