Points for a Compass Rose is classified as poetry only for want of a more precise term. In fact, it is a book which does not fit in any established genre, and to call it poetry is misleading. The compass rose is a navigation tool that has been used since the 14th century. There are various points on it that stand for different winds and directions. It is called a compass rose because all of the points look like rose petals. The design of the rose has evolved over time but standard colors and symbols still remain.
