You Come Too

Favorite Poems for Readers of All Ages

Robert Frost; With a Foreword by Noel Perrin

Owlet Paperbacks

"To Belle Moodie Frost," reads the dedication for this book, "who knew as a teacher that no poetry was good for children that wasn't equally good for their elders." You Come Too features poems that were gathered by Frost himself—and the poetry he assembled here is thus intended to be read and enjoyed by readers of all ages. Specifically Frost chose poems that best lend themselves to being read aloud. After all, as Noel Perrin notes in his Foreword, Frost was an artist determined to use "the ordinary language of ordinary people, and to transmute that plain Yankee speech into shining verse."
