Marriage lines?  A Separate Peace? 
The Book of Questions. 
How Did it Begin?
The Little Prince -- he’s got 
the whole world in his pants.
Mythology!  
 Uh oh… 
viva la repartee.
True love?  
 The age of fable! 
Maybe (maybe not)
‘Scuse me while I kiss this guy…
Miracles, morning glories & moonflowers!
Good garden magic on the wing
for one more day.



In case you're curious, here's my book list: 

Marriage Lines by Ogden Nash - a fun bit of silliness!  
A Separate Peace by John Knowles - serious reading. 
The Book of Questions by Pablo Neruda - excellent poetry!
How Did it Begin? by R. Brasch - hundreds of little known facts!
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery - a classic!
He’s Got the Whole World in his Pants by Gavin Edwards - humorous collection of mis-heard lyrics
Mythology by Edith Hamilton - self-explanatory
Uh-Oh by Robert Fulghum - amusing observations from both sides of the refrigerator door
