I offer three volumes of poetry as free downloads, free with my best wishes. You are welcome to share them with others, provided that you do so in unaltered form, including copyright and URL found on the title pages.
The Marsh. Ten years we spent–my wife, our two children, our cats, and I–in a suburban house that backed onto a marsh. Although fifty miles from the Atlantic, it was a tidal marsh, and so it felt the influence of the sea. The form of this poetry is the cinquain, an American form of haiku verse comprising five lines of two, four, six, eight and two syllables respectively.
