The Book of Poems is an item in Chrono Cross. It was authored by the Poet of Arni, who spent her days in 1020 A.D. working in Arni (Belcha's Kitchen, specifically). She dreamt of becoming a famous poet and traveling across Zenan. When Serge visited her before crossing the dimensions, she expressed much joy in his listening to her poem. After he returned from Another World, where he had met the version of the girl who had not followed her poetic dream, he told the original about her other self. The girl was tickled by Serge's seemingly romantic jab and jokingly gave him the book with the instructions of delivering it to her other self.
An excerpt from the chapbook:

Insanity leads to chaos,
  Then to solitude...
  The fruitless effort of adding
  Meaning to what is meaningless
  A lone, crimson tear
  Falls to the sea...
  The echo of the remaining star
  Cries out in the infinite vacuum
  The least I can do
  Is send my distant prayers
  Over the wind of time,
  Setting sail on dreams...
