Excerpt from Garden Walks With the Poets
Whatever may seem capricious in the selection is therefore to be ascribed to redundance and excellence of material. I should have been glad to make my book hold twice as many poems, and have left out not a few favorites, sorely against my will. The plan required that variety of topics and treatment should be a leading object, and this excluded some of the most charming ﬂower-poetry. Then, again, some pieces of that kind had, from their very excellence, already found their way into every school reading-book, and it seemed superﬂuous to reprint them here. And more than all, the quantity of verses which I had supposed could be contained in a good-sized volume, proved so much beyond the capacity of any volume of tolerable proportions, that a great mass of dearly beloved poems were absolutely crowded out pell-mell; thus disturbing considerably the regular ar rangement at first contemplated. I think, however, there will be found something for all tastes, as well as for all seasons and I sincerely desire that my readers may enjoy Garden Walks with the Poets as much as I have.
