Voices On The Wind
"It sleeps in all souls though the lyre be unstrung, Those poems unwritten and songs unsung." From the whimsical and fanciful to the grand and sublime, this collection of poems explores the manifestation of the poetic spirit in Nature, the cosmos and its ultimate expression in the human mind and heart. Written in traditional meters and rhythms, as well as strophic form, it seeks to touch that which is universal in humanity; that longing for the eternal, the infinite, beyond the mere physical senses, yet somehow ever present and suffused throughout the things of this world. As Poe said, to "excite the soul" is the highest calling of poetry, and is why the great classical poets continue to inspire us to this day. There is a manifest yearning among today's lovers of poetry for a rebirth of this classical ideal and it is hoped that this volume might contribute, in however a small way to that process.
