All the poems are about people even if one seems to be about a bed sheet

The characters range in age from a 7 year old remembering when he was three to an old guy struggling with a jigsaw puzzle and reviewing his life. Some are philosophical but in a folksy rather than academic way.

Je ne Suis pas Charlie was written against the tirade of hatred that followed the Paris killings and was originally simply called Respect. Many are sentimental, some just written to make you laugh, others to make you think again by considering a new perspective.

Try setting a time aside each week and dipping in to a poem you have time to read and that suits your mood.

Buy the collection for loved ones and make the same suggestion - maybe they'll think kindly of you once a week for a few minutes in their busy lives.
