This is the second work by C. L. Post and is a combination of a few short-short stories followed by quite a few of his now published poems. His short stories deal with the homeless and their actions, reactions, pits and perils. Originally these stories were meant to be longer, but were cut back in size to present the problem in a more concise way. The popular poems are meant to reflect on experiences while traveling down the road of life. Thus, "The Down the Road Collection." The poems in this book are meant to be experienced in a light-hearted - "Oh, I've seen that" or "I've done that" sort of way. We hope you enjoy "The Down the Road Collection." The author's first work, entitled "Be" (Be Yourself) was written to instigate thought about the topics of past, present, future, space, motion and time.
Lewis Carroll's "The Walrus and the Carpenter," Edward Lear's "The Owl and the Pussy-Cat," Eugene Field's "Wynken, Blynken and Nod," Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Swing," many more, all in large, easy-to-read type.
This is a series of some of my favorite poems. I have always been disappointed that I could never find "The Highwayman" and "The Lady of Shalott" in a short book of poems together. So here they are in a nice collection especially published for bedtime. I've always thought a nice rhyme would be the best for putting a person to sleep. I hope this creates an easy bedtime for anyone who wants to fall asleep to the soothing beat of the spoken word.
