Do you like poetry that is clear and understandable as well as being pleasant to read?
Are your memories of poetry at school as being in need of translation into ‘normal’ English before you could even begin to know what the poem was about?
If that put you off poetry, then get ready to be surprised and entertained by poetry that speaks of many of the things you know, in a very readable yet poetic way.
Poetry should be accessible and this poet makes it so.
The title “Gallimaufry” explains that this brilliant book holds poems on a mixture of subjects, each of which will raise a smile or a tear, maybe evoke a memory of a time, place, or person that you knew or loved, for many of these things are shared by all human beings.
Let Salmagundi take you on this journey to some old and some new thoughts; from poems about animals to friendship, from love to pain, humour to inspirational; poems about the beauty and wonder of nature and others of science fiction or fantasy, or the passing of time and even present day concerns.
A book to read and re-read, to enjoy and maybe even quote from, for the natural rhythm of this poet’s work makes much of it easy to remember.
Here is the ISBN number for "Gallimaufry".
