Excerpt from Almond Blossom: A Collection of Verse and Prose Books for children are legion, books by them, few hence these few are of especial value to all who watch with care how children develop. Some of the work has been circulated privately, and it is in response to oft-repeated requests that it is now placed before the public in the sincere hope that it may be useful as well as interesting. I have always maintained that it is possible for the average child to write verse, and I think this little collection goes far to prove that statement. Few children are colour-blind; few are tone deaf; the great majority enjoy the sense of colour, and the sense of sound, and in the same ratio are those who can write verse. No one is so unreasonable as to insist that only great geniuses - the Shakespeares, the Miltons, the Dantes - should attempt to write poetry. Why should the privilege of expressing in verse things which touch the heart be confined to those who have studied the laws of Prosody? Such limitations would rob alike writers and readers of an innocent delight. Nature has room for her windflowers and buttercups, as well as for her Cedars of Lebanon, and there is sometimes as much real pleasure to be derived from the study of simple, natural and often charming verse, as from the perusal of Hamlet or the Divine Comedy. I am sure, too, that it is meet and fitting that children should write as these do. Even as they learn to speak before acquiring rules of grammar, so they should be permitted to sing before they are worried by metrical laws. Thus, a casual study of Part I will show that no attempt has been made to achieve form, though most of the work is rhythmic.
