    Easily one of the finest poets on this site, Ivan has taught me many things about structure, design and flow. I'm always extremely impressed when I read his work, and recommend his poetry as ESENTIAL reading to anyone who appreciates true talent.

    I have found a new teacher... sure I might wag some days... but be it pet or trouble... when I turn up to class 'I put my hand up....... [careful too many law suits appearing around school discipline] and rediscover....

    I have only just discovered Ivan's poetry and I love it.

    Tara got here first and I have to agree with everything she has to say. This guy is a Poem Hunter stalwart of the first order. Clear thinking and highly intelligent, teasing, funny, provocative, honest, compassionate and passionate where it counts, and a damned fine poet to boot! ! The only problem is that the stuff just pours out of him and it's murder trying to keep up! jim

  • Tara very irritated with PH injustice (2/1/2007 4:28:00 AM)

    An absolute rarity among poets - a gem. Expressive, erudite, emotive (often with a quasi-objective slant) . Ivan should be compulsory reading. Well... he is, for some of us! t x

Best Poem of Ivan Donn Carswell

Breathe Again

keeping a day ahead when
space occupied by those
preceding still reeks of
waste is deemed vagrancy

and planning non-events
because your life depends on
it does not explain why no
demand exists in any case

living in expectancy of a
life-changing phone-call
doesn’t bring order to the
chaos surrounding you, so

unleash suspense, be an
angel freed of tyranny
leave the mess, hide the
phone, breathe again
© 25 January 2010, I. D. Carswell

Epitomes Of Grace

sickness still remains a sting
that steals vitality, keenly fed
on anguish bled from trauma
deep, tension wed to agony in
thrall to grief; no pleasure left
to ease ambiguous disgrace
endured as much inured and
endlessly emphatic pain
