You won’t find any hosts
of golden daffodils here.
This is not the place to look
for mellow fruitfulness.
The ‘seasons’ in this poetry
collection are of such things
as war graves and madness.
‘Light verse’ suggests frivolity. You would indeed have to search hard to find deep meaning in, for example, the title poem and 2002: A Space Fantasy.
Some, however, like Zing-Zor, Glorious War do contain a more serious message, although conveyed in a light way.
A collection of poetry with a difference. As the title suggests, the first pages are taken up by original song lyrics.
May I add that there's no such thing as 'American as apple pie'. Various forms of apple pie were made in Europe centuries before Columbus was born. There's no truth in the rumour that Erik the Red, Native Americans, or Madoc, were fans of apple pie.
Links to some of the songs in performance (by others) are also given. Many (though by no means all) of the ‘straight’ poems have a distinct edge to them.
