In this collection, Ezra Lim manipulates the power of light verse to communicate philosophical concepts about womanness in profound and intriguing ways. From aching tenderness, through romantic... More > thrills to religious doctrination and personal compassion, Ezra Lim’s simplistic but colourful lines are commodious in spirit, and communicate extremely rare sensibilities about womanhood. The poems are full of heart and soul, and the collection “It is like a virgin;/… she becomes a door,/Any may enter many times”. This is a collection to be read not only by lovers of poetry but by all who desire to understand the intricacies - the pains and gains - of girlhood and womanhood.
