Glad you approve. By all means, borrow away! :)

When I started A-level English a few years ago, I didn't think I'd be able to tolerate poetry at all. By the time we were done with it, I had become quite a champion of it! It takes more thought to decipher than prose, and that can add to its pleasure.

Oh, I don't know Rumi. Will need to investigate. Don't know Keats all that well either. Only now starting to "get" poetry, and educating myself with it all.

I got a selection of Rumi poems for my Kindle and occasionally dip into that. Not read Keats yet.
