Rhyme For All Seasons, Many Holidays and Special Occasions is a treasury for poetry lovers or secular speakers, but especially for religious speakers on or near a holiday. About 200 of Dr. Skelton's poems about seasons, holidays, and/or special occasions are chronologically arranged in four sections, with a fifth section for non-seasonal special occassions. The reader may be surprised at some that are included.
Doc writes to be understood, and is willing to sacrifice some of the fancy poetic terms for the sake of clarity. He does seek for words that are pleasing to the ear, but not at the expense of reader understanding. He suggests that you read these poems with a close eye on the calendar.
