Book Description

Neil Myers' poetry reflects his interest in the moods of local landscapes and in the language of ordinary experience. For this collection he has chosen forty lyric poems which deal with basic themes: the world around him, his family, children, parents, the past, and the seasons' cycle. The poet writes of his work: "I'm not concerned with labels. I admire poems that show energy and clarity, that deal with inward value held up against the weather, that are part of a constant process of making up one's mind about the world."
