Presenting... A Treasury of Classic Poetry

Hello Everyone!
It is that time of the month again for me to do one in my Presenting... series! Since it is National Poetry Month, I am doing my sister's Treasury of Classic Poetry! Once again, sorry the photos are not that good, I'm not the best photographer.
The cover is brown with bronze and gold designs.
My sister got this for Christmas 2015 from my dad.

On the back it says:
"A Treasury of Classic Poetry
The poems selected for this volume span nearly 500 years, from the sixteenth to the early twentieth century. More than 300 of the best-loved poems in the English language are featured, representing more than fifty of the world's greatest poets including:

William Blake
Lord Byron
Lewis Carroll
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Emily Dickinson
John Donne
T. S. Eliot
Robert Frost
John Keats
Edna St. Vincent Millay
John Milton
Edgar Allan Poe
Alexander Poe
William Shakespeare
Wallace Stevens
Walt Whitman
William Wordsworth
William Butler Yeats."

This is how wide it is, this is a standard pencil.
Today was Poem in your Pocket day! The poem I carried around was "Hope" is the thing with feathers - by Emily Dickinson. Did anyone else carry a poem around?
I'm sorry this was a very short and strange post.
Have a good day!
