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.
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
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.
Congrats to Frank on a lovely review!
It’s a lovely poetry collection. 🙂
Thanks so much for a lovely review. It is truly wonderful to receive such support.
I’ll share this over at my place a bit later today.
Congratulations on going great guns with Mr Sagittarius, as well. Bravo!
Hi Frank. My pleasure I love it! And thank you for your kind words about Mr. Sagittarius. Its exciting to think that I am now a poet!
Welcome to a highly exclusive (and slightly impoverished) club.
Luckily I’m not in it for the money! Lol. 🙂
I’d like to be in it for the money. Have to play a long game, though.
Oh, best of luck Frank. I’m sure it will happen for you. Keep up the hard work. <3
Your line gave me an idea for a story! Thanks Frank… <3 I was struggling with a bit of writer's block. Cracked it. 🙂
I’m delighted, Marje. Go get em.
