This anthology is the original work of East–Anglian poet and writer Keith Stanley–Mallett; who first began writing in 1959. He has endeavoured to bring colour and simplicity to his work over the years, in the belief that poetry should be easily read and instantly recognizable, to bring some reaction from the reader.
This collection of verse has been written over the last forty years and encompasses diverse genres from childhood memories to space exploration; from love to the marvels of nature.
All topics are explored and described with great depth of feeling, provoking one’s imagination to conjure up scenes depicted in vivid detail.
The author’s love of the countryside is made apparent by the many and varied poems on this theme which highlight aspects that can easily be overlooked by the casual observer. Especially mentioned are the areas around the fenlands of Norfolk where he currently lives.
These poems will take you on a journey full of colour and enlightenment, and can be enjoyed in bitesize pieces or while ensconced in a comfortable armchair for lengthier periods. Whichever way is chosen, the reader will always want to come back for more.
