Plot The old poet is discouraged, for he knows his work is good. His opinion is shared by his daughter, Flo, but not by his wife. Flo takes the poems to a publisher's, but they will not even look at them, stating that they are a drag on the market. Flo is a public stenographer and Phil, a business man, dictates his letters to her and finds her attractive. He later sends his office boy for the finished letters, who in taking them up also takes her manuscripts by mistake. Phil finds them and is struck by the beauty of the poems. He returns them in person and meets her father at the same time. He compliments the old poet on his work and leaves. At Grace Richly's home, Grace is reading some poems of her own to her friends. They applaud, all except Phil, her intended. She asks him where she can have them typewritten and he takes her to Flo's office and leaves her there. While waiting, Grace reads the poet's work and offers to buy them for a good price and Flo, desiring to encourage her father, sells them to the girl. Grace takes them to the publisher, who, noting the signs of wealth of his caller, reads the poems and agrees to publish them. They make a great artistic and monetary success and Grace is lionized. In the meantime Phillips, being without a stenographer, persuades Flo, to take a permanent position with him and she is glad of the opportunity. A month later, Grace sends a copy of her book to Phil, who telephones his congratulation. Poor Flo looks on, wishing her dear old dad could have had the credit which rightly belonged to him, but she is unable to say anything in honor bound. That evening Phil calls upon Grace and she reads the poem she favors most, he recognizes it and turns upon her and finally leaves her. He goes to the home of the poet and tells him of the publication of his verse, and when the old man shows anger towards Flo, Phil shows him that he is interested in her future and persuades him to he encouraged and to write others, not hampered by the stress of poverty.... search for A Book of Verses on IMDb
