This is a fine piece. A magnificent, romantic poem that is best read aloud. The momentum that builds, verse by verse - nothing like it

I bought this book and got only sample, I'm really upset with amazon. I spent too much time for adding my information, to register my credit card and to look for this book. I'm so disappointed
