Review

Frank Prem (Walk Away Silver Heart) has an extraordinary way with words and his poems invoke great passion and emotion in the reader. This latest work is inspired by a poem called Madonna of the Evening Flowers by Amy Lowell. The poet has taken each line of this famous poem and used it to inspire his own poem.

The first two poems set the scene for this collection of love poems and particularly the first part of the book which focuses on absence. Many emotions partner with love and one of them is a feeling of loss when our special person or people are not there. This also applies to mothers who feel a great sense of loss when their children start growing up and moving away. Absence is quite integral to love and the air of melancholy that is evident in the first section of these poems results in an intensely emotional reading experience. The later poems move on to cover a wide variety of different emotions and situations.

This collection includes some stunning poems and I loved the poet's take on the theme of love and the use of a famous love poem as inspiration. I enjoyed the two older poems that were included at the end of the book and was interested to note how the poet's style of writing has changed and simplified over time. I thoroughly enjoyed all the poems, both the older ones and the recent once.

One of my favourite poems, because it moved me and I dwelled on it for a long while, is too much (to bear). This is a short extract from this poem:
"the hallway seems
a chasm
filled up
with emptiness
distilled
I look around
again
to find you

you're not there

you are
somewhere away."
