    Max, thank you for commenting on my work. I have now been reading yours and find there is a lovely simplicity of statement in it - an enchanting mix of worldly and unworldly. I came to poetry late in life, that's why I think I'll be finishing early, rather than later! ! Regards, Gol

    Max, I enjoy and admire your honesty, simplicity, clarity, and that touch of magic. I hope you keep on writing, and there's a book there eventually...

    If idiom is tone-if it can be-as I suspect it is in many of the poems of yours I've read-then it offers an exotic and impressive mixture of sense and sensibility, wisdom in worldliness, & worldy things, amusing & always vulnerable, enchanting, haunting & dear.

An Irish Invocation

And may your thoughts
inhabit your mind
as peacefully
as the cows graze
on that distant, golden hill

December Epiphany

On my way to the laundry room just now,
the sky already darkening at 4 pm,
the pale moon had sailed up
alongside the oak with the huge canopy
of yellow leaves resembling a teardrop.

Suddenly the world
was reduced to simple beauty.
