Bailosky remembers many poems influencing and reflecting her life, from nursery rhymes to Shakespeare's sonnets. Music is like that too, from lullabies to classic, to popular, ballads and blues, and somehow there is something out there that suits every mood and nuance, and this book will reminds us of such importance.
