Author David Clarke Bryan uncovers a compilation of poetry that covers different matters revolving around life, ranging from love, sadness, anger and fatherhood to war and seasons. “The Wanderlust Heart” (published by Xlibris) creatively portrays the depth and art found within a myriad of topics.
The title pretty much sums up the theme of this book of poems. It reveals a formal, rhyming poetry whose clear cadence creates memorable lines and poems, from the classic form of the sonnet to the rhyming couplets and quatrains of the narrative poetry it lives and breathes. Bryan takes readers through the beauty of young love in “Sweet Jenny” and lets them experience how feelings can mature in “A Classic Love” and “A Famous Woman.” They can also discover a multitude of subjects – the hope in fatherhood as played out in “One Hope,” the horrors of war in “A Mother’s Tears,” “An Irish Mother” and “What Justice Cannot . . .,” the pains of hell in “A Pale Horse,” “Seek Not Hell” and “Our Perished Sons.” Each season is represented, with many poems staying true to the basic wanderlust theme.
“For those that love the old-time classic poetry, this book will definitely have appeal,” Bryan says. “I hope that the poetry reflects an overall compassion for the plight of humankind especially in relation to war.”
Heartfelt and evocative, “The Wanderlust Heart” allows readers to experience the perfect use of form that should be poetry with the use of strength, rhythm and rhyme of the language.
