Tuning In

by

Tuning In is a collection of poems from a much larger collection of poems written by Helen Rabbitte throughout her life. Due to her passion for playing the violin Helen has had great freedom to meet other musicians all over the world, and her poetry details the generosity shown to her while travelling alone. Since a teenager, Helen has had some ill health, but luckily has managed to stay well for most of the time. Illness, she feels, makes her more empathetic to others and perhaps, through her poetry, she has given a voice to those who tend to hide their illness from others.

A beautiful Book of Poetry, I read her poems over and over again and have given copiesof it to my friends. Keep up the good work Helen

by Mairead Rabbitte


I really enjoyed this book. The poetry reminds me of Patrick Kavanagh's and Seamus Heaney's. I liked the fact that all poems are based on personal experience- whether it be love of music and its power to heal, the joys of Travel or how much little little things can help in illness. Helen shows great insight and empathy into human nature in all its guises. I like to take up the book and flip through its pages. Now I am looking at "Remedy" page 53- it speaks to my soul.
