Read full description of the books Honey and Salt:While poetry never became as central to my reading tastes as prose, I can get into it if it's reasonably accessible and expresses ideas and/or feelings I can relate to. (To be "accessible," it doesn't necessarily have to spell out its meaning as explicitly as a prose essay would, because that's not the nature of poetry; it often communicates, just as prose fiction also often does, by indirection, symbolism and appeal to emotions, enabling the reader to intuit the deeper meaning with more mental impact than would be achieved if it were baldly spelled out. But to do this, the reader --at least, this reader :-)-- still has to have some objective basis in coherent language to work with!) Sandburg's poetry eminently meets both tests!
All the poetry here is free verse; so, if your theory of poetry is like Percy's in The Scarlet Pimpernel ("It ain't a poem if it don't rhyme"), this wouldn't be the poetry book for you. But for Sandburg, free verse is never an excuse for bad writing. His poems are direct and simple, often lyrical and beautiful, and always expressive. My only regret is that I don't own a copy (I checked it out from a library), so I don't have a copy in front of me to identify my favorite ones --I can remember the poems, but, alas, not the titles! (You'll just have to read it yourself and pick out your own favorites. :-) )
