Mary Oliver, best-selling author of the poetry collection, “Dog Songs,” says in the New York Times: “People want poetry. They need poetry. They get it. They don’t want fancy work.” Poetry written to be understood, without the need for interpretation, is the poetry that is created by today’s writers. The new poetry collection written by Glenn, “Say You’ll Stay: For Lovers of Poetry” (published by iUniverse) is one such work.
Experienced poet Glenn offers a collection of poetry covering a variety of topics, from love to nature to the ravages of war. His poetry is full of realistic life experiences as well as optimistic themes written in metered structure and understandable without interpretation.
An excerpt from the poem, “She Made Room for Me”:
“She made room for me, soon our life is one,
For we wed shall be, sure, ’tis plain to see.
She made room for me, and our world’s begun.
All of this because—she made room for me!”
This collection will boost the mood of all ‘Lovers of Poetry,’ regardless of the readers’ emotion, philosophy or outlook on life.
