    Dear Fr. Colin Jeffery,

    I am sorry about the delay replying you due to certain pressing personal preoccupations.

    I must confess that I have impaired hearing and usually avoid audio recordings. However, I did visit your U-tube upload and heard out all the poems recited by you in a beautifully paced manner. When and where I didn’t hear you properly, I did go back to the text at your PH poetry page to verify.

    I see that our fellow-poet Mr. Ramesh Rai has done the upload. Both of you deserve immense congratulations for your grand effort. The fast -changing images are very vivid and well selected to go with the themes of the poems. Overall, a marvelous presentation!

    Your war poems are really moving, which perhaps speak of your childhood war trauma (and shell-shock?) that has trickled down into you from your soldier dad. Your poetry is the grand reconciliation of two roles poles apart - of a soldier’s son and that of a priest. “Tribute To The Fallen” moved me very much and, in my opinion, that one is your best war-related poem. Of non-war themes, while “Aberfan” and “Death Of A Sperm-Whale” had me moved to tears, I loved the beauty of “The Cat”, “Poet” and “Keeper Of My Heart”. I have commented under these poems.

    You are a versatile poet, adept at economy of words.

    Thanks for inviting me to your U-tube upload.

    I am not very familiar with U-tube settings and can’t figure out how to upload my comments directly there. Kindly advise how it is done. In the meanwhile I am pasting a copy of this on “Opinion About The Poet” page at PH.

    Great regards.

Best Poem of Colin Ian Jeffery

Billy

Never speaks
Trapped within damaged brain
Body twisted, limbs trembling
Sitting in hospital yard
Humming tunes without melody.
Bright soul standing tall
Articulate mind intact
Singing melodious songs of love
Only God and he can hear.
