This book of poems is for both young and old to enjoy, to reflect upon, and to share the poet’s experience of life. His first narrative poem should be in every primary school classroom. To be read aloud and used as a basis for drama. It captures long forgotten memories and echoes of fearful delight when reading ancient fairy stories by the Brothers Grimm. In the “Seasons of the Year” he brings to life the unending joy and rhythm of nature, whilst “Memories” tells of the freedom of youth to explore the world. Anyone who has spent endless hours in airports will love “Trans Atlantic” which illustrates the frustration of modern travel. “Perfect Planning” is a perfect modern day story with a nice twist at the end. “Afterword” harks back to the author’s interest in classical literature and his original books of poetry (Conversations with a Muse and A Miscellany of Muses). I recommend this book to all those who love story telling. – J. Towe B.Ed.Hons.
