Remember the 70s, when we were all carrying around collections of poems by Susan Polis Schutz, illustrated by her husband , Stephen... or lines by George Betts..?|
...and quoting from The Prophet?
Remember Farewells Are Only Beginnings and The Language Of love and I Want To Laugh, I Want To Cry?
Remember Rod McKuen's anguished The Sea Around Me...The Hills Above...and Caught In The Quiet?
Well, Robert Green, Virginian relocated to Mississippi, appears to think the time is again ripe for that same brand of simple love poetry..!
Now it happens that I have have noted an increased leaning toward authorship among middleaged men in America..manly, macho males unafraid to put their sentiments into words, and their names underneath!..
There is also a growing trend, (The Medium IS The Message) for netfolk to be writing poems that will fit onto the little message forms ICQ make available...I.e., 450 characters, and the cyberwaves are fairly humming with these little sippets of sentiment that netfriends hurl back and forth...so there are many SHORT poems in this collection!
I wouldn't trade my world
Robert's friends and rather large family have been his staunchest allies, his fervent fans, and his most inspired marketers..
And many of Robert's poems first saw the light of published day on the personal websites of his long list of ICQ friends!
And the poems?..
But this man and his poems come highly recommended by a LOT of people......
Robert plans four more books like this one, and I can vouch for the fact that words do, indeed come trippingly from his typing fingers, if not from his tongue...
Oh..and you can buy it from US, too, for $AU19.95!
