What people are saying about: A Collection of Verse


A Collection of Verse – nonfiction, 108 pages:

Excellent/5-star reviews on:


‘Your sight-rhymed poems have impressed. They cover politics, culture, and religion about which you write passionately, occasionally didactically.’

‘Mainly succinct, sensuous.’

‘Readers will be encouraged and enlightened.’

‘Written with clarity and precise diction!’

‘Highly highly recommend that you consider submitting your poetry for awards.’

‘Incredibly gifted writer with an amazing eloquence to your poetry!’

‘LEST SHE FORGETS’ re the UK Mountbatten-Windsor royal family/World War Three agenda.  ‘Sanity galvanizes readers to act!’

CATALONIA: ‘you use lexis and syntax that suit the ambience being evoked.’

STORM: ‘contextualized to seafarers and `sun hammered waves’ is stunningly visual.’

HOME IN ON THE RANGE: ‘both lyrical and dramatic. Arresting word combinations e.g. `squirrels pine, needles spruce. Also the comic details of old Billy grazing.’

CHUNK: ‘how fluently you convey nature’s kinesthetic energy.’

GLASGOW: CELL BLOCK H – ‘powerful pathos. Scots dialect is employed appositely.’

HEAVENS ABOVE: ‘shows love of word play.’

SCENE FROM THE BACKGOUND: ‘even more of a word picture. Effective feature are the echoic effects…’

CANUTE: ‘punning, a teasing reflection of King Canute’s fabled ability.’

JAFFA GATE STING: ‘seriocomic. Song-like opening.’

CATALONIA: ‘a poem to the architectural beauty and transcendent faith contained in Barcelona.’
