If you enjoy the descriptions of nature in Montgomery's stories, you'll love these poems. (: The imagery in them is beautiful. The readers have done an excellent job of capturing the rhythm and beauty of the poems, and all the ones I've listened to so far are read very well (with clear recordings).
