“Paeany” succeeds in presenting individual poems of great merit while at the same time gathering them together to present a wide view of the poets daughter. Every poem is meticulous and great care has been made in positioning the poems to present the overall narrative. Along side poems about her daughter including the wonderful SOPHIE and THE NAME OF THE ROSE are selected ekphrastic poems about artworks that hint at tenderness and love. It is a beautiful story told in fine poetry. There is no happy ending but the story of a happy life is well drawn and beautifully illustrated by the poet. All monies received for this fine booklet of poems is going to the Homeless Peoples Relief Fund at St-Martin-in-the-Fields in London.
“A DAUGHTER IS A TIME OF TRUTH” and “OFF SCREEN” are my too outstanding poems from this selection. It will not come as a surprise that this booklet has been chosen as Poetry Kit Book of The Month for March 2018.
