The Time of Your Life: Poems
This book is a collection of about eighty poems. Most are short, and most are written in verse (although always strict verse). They typically read as musings written carelessly without a second thought. However, the structure reveals the toils of the travails. Most poems focus on the mundane aspects of like (such as counting lilies in the garden), or the minutia of living. Focusing on the very mundane has its perils as readers may appreciate the novel aspect, or discard the musings as simply blathering. Indeed, the poems here are likely to strike readers as going from end to another (depending on the reader’s point of view).
Overall, the author does try to present mundane aspects in a new light, but some insights are more opaque than others. Most though, are a fun read – especially when one is tired at the end of the day and is looking for something that is simultaneously erudite and relaxing.
