    A positive and uplifting collection of poems which are full of beauty, romance, mysticism, and humanity. The poetry of Aly O'Neill captures the full range of human experience with its evocations of familial love in 'Portreath Mermaids: 'I believe in mermaids,/I gave birth to two you see,/for nothing makes them happier than splashing in the sea,' to the magical mystery of encounters with the natural world in 'Sea Mist': ' Mystical aura that hangs/heavenly over the sea,' and the compassion of 'Hope': ' The world needed her eyes/she did not see class, race, religion,/she had not learnt hate'. These poems express joy and appreciation of the enchanting environment of Cornwall in 'Cornish Spring': 'The hedgerows and grass banks,/Burst fall again,/with every shade of green' and 'Ballad of Portreath': 'Fishing boats in the harbour./Out on the horizon ships,/Artist with charcoal sketch gull rock'. 'Poems worth their Salt; Tears, Tide and Time' is also full of poems that convey social concerns.... More > Aly O'Neill expresses these concerns with sensitivity, empathy and insightfulness - from the expose of modern day slavery in 'Trafficked' : ' They prey on division,/On politics and corporation,/Failings of Humanity./ We turn our eyes like we do not see/Slavery' to the exploration of the inhumanity of international conflict in 'The True Cost of War': ' The true cost of war does not dwell in government's financial spread sheets,/The true cost is grim and bears no fruit to reap,' The poems in this book are frequently accompanied by the perfectly captured and wonderfully expressive photography of Boodles Photography. I recommend this book to all lovers of poetry.< Less
