Much has been stated about poetry. “Poetry is what in a poem makes you laugh, cry, prickle, be silent, makes your toe nails twinkle, makes you want to do this or that or nothing, makes you... More > know that you are alone in the unknown world, that your bliss and suffering is forever shared and forever all your own.” ~ Dylan Thomas “Poetry can be dangerous, especially beautiful poetry, because it gives the illusion of having had the experience without actually going through it.” ~ Rumi “Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.” ~ Carl Sandburg “Poetry is a word-fed spring flowing from the consciousness of the poet’s mind.” ~ Régis Auffray With “A Stir of Echoes” it is the author’s hope that the reader will be able to appreciate and perhaps to identify with the various situations, dilemmas, conflicts, miseries, euphoria, etc. that are expressed and consequently shared through his verses. The verses offer a glimpse into the author’s soul and thus a way to get to know him more intimately.< Less

Limericks, it has been said, represent the lowest form of poetry. They are generally silly or downright funny, perhaps enough to elicit a smile or even a laugh. They are challenging and fun to create... More > because the writer has to manipulate the words in order to make them fit the requirements of the limerick genre. The limericks in this book are fictional. However, most of them were inspired by real events, experiences, persons, animals, things, etc. You may find that you think you recognize some of the individuals mentioned. You may even see yourself in one or more of the limericks presented here. Yes, some of them are satirical and perhaps even bitter. That is life I suppose. This project is for the fun of writing without any real purpose except to indulge my silliness, my childish nature, and perhaps to make the reader smile.< Less
