Book Review – Walk Away Silver Heart by Frank Prem #love #poetry

Goodreads Synopsis:

This is a collection of love poetry inspired through interpretation of phrases in the Amy Lowell poem ‘Madonna of the Evening Flowers’ (A Lowell, 1919). This collection of poetry is the first of a planned series of three, with poems derived from Walt Whitman (Leaves of Grass, 1855) and T. S. Eliot (The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, 1910) also scheduled to feature in their own collections.

The nature of the love poems in this collection is personal or interpersonal.

Frank Prem’s interpretations breathe a new life into contemporary love poetry and utilise Lowell’s original work to inspire a tender immediacy and a wonderful warmth of response.

My review

Walk away silver heart is the first of three poetry collections written for A Love Poetry Trilogy.

My favourite poems:

the way you wield (flashes in the light)
too much (to bear)
finding me (a warm place carried)
I think (I paint)
murmuring (the lake)
need (goes on)
chiming a little tune (of you)
for the summer
red and pink the blossom
tell me everything (about you)
walk away (silver heart
and again
lucky one
a muse for the madonna (awesome!)

I received an ARC copy from the author Frank Prem and am pleased to share my unbiased opinion of his work.

This is a beautiful collection of love poetry and in my opinion my favourite of Frank Prem’s poetry that I have had the pleasure of reading.

Just goes to show I must be a romantic at heart!

My rating: Highly recommended – 5 stars.

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.
