Urquhart also considers man’s relationship with his fellow human beings and other life on this planet. Some of the poems are philosophical in nature; some are referential in their discussion of God and nature.

The relationship between man and nature, man and God and even man and the unknown has been a common theme in literature. From Jack London’s “Call of the Wild” to C.S. Lewis’ “The Screwtape Letters,” man’s relationship with those beings (and un-beings) around him has long been dissected and analyzed. Poet Henry O. Urquhart does the same in his collection “From the Heart” (published by Trafford Publishing); yet, readers may find a unique spin in this often-tried genre.

Urquhart’s collection provides a distinctive flair in its wholehearted submersion into its subject matter. Personal and deeply intimate, Urquhart’s poems delve into the topic of mankind's relationship to the Earth and the life thereon, and man’s reliance on God. Urquhart also considers man’s relationship with his fellow human beings and other life on this planet. Some of the poems are philosophical in nature; some are referential in their discussion of God and nature.

An excerpt from “From the Heart”:
Love’s Redemption

As love began to ease the pain
I knew that I had much to gain
My soul expanded to full measure
And my life was filled with pleasure
You became the center of my life
And I asked you to be my wife
Now many years have passed
So I know our love will last
Life is not as it once seemed
Because your love my soul redeemed
