- From the Foreword by Eugene Schwartz:
"David Kennedy has come to our rescue with this book."
"'Camerado!' Walt Whitman tells us in his masterpiece Leaves of Grass, 'This is no book; who touches this touches a man.' In this book, David Kennedy shares with us the currents of sound and meaning that passed between him and his students in the course of his teaching career. His years of experience have helped to make his selection of poems and the order in which they appear a model that may be followed by any teacher wishing to encounter and honor the Word within the Waldorf curriculum. Touch this book, and you will touch and teach each child in your care."
