These poems were all written by Rod McKuen, one of the finest chansonniers and song writers in America today. Or, to quote Gene Lees of HI FI Stereo Review, 'the best contemporary song writer around" An opinion shared by The Times, The New Tork Times and Paris Match. In addition, this book previously published privately by Rod McKuen, has helped to make him one of the best-selling authors of poetry in the world today.

The words within these pages are for music. They sing of love lost and found and lost again. They are hymns to the dying, sonnets to the summer and verses of the joy of being wanted - even for a night. Love words gentle, direct, beautifully lasting.
