Aunt Margaret’s Everyman’s Library Pocket Poet Collection!

My Favorite Aunt and Her Favorite Poets

One of my favorite people in the whole wide world (who happens to also be my aunt!), Margaret Rantz, following in my footsteps of collecting Everyman's Library classics and contemporary classics, has started her very own collection of the absolutely lovely (just like her!) Everyman's Library Pocket Poets. Whether she knows it or not - though at this point, I think she is starting to see the writing, err poetry, on the wall - she is off to a great start with several right outta the gate! 


So, given everyone has designated her the Poet Laureate of the family (or at least a title I am strongly lobbying for), without further ado, here is her very own Everyman's Library Pocket Poet webpage to track her wonderful and growing Pocket Poet collection!


UPDATE: As of March 31, 2019, Aunt Margaret has gotten all 111 Everyman's Library Pocket Poets! Way to go Aunt Margaret!!! What an amazing pleasure it has been finding and searching and collecting and reading these treasures with you!  Purely poetic indeed!

The Humble Beginnings of Aunt Margaret's Poetry Collection

I've always loved this picture - way back in the beginning of January 2019, ha! - when Aunt Margaret only had six compared to the entire collection she has now (at the end of March 2019!)!  So, without further  ado, simply posting this humble but darling little picture for fun and reminiscent sake!
