by Glynn Tiller
Poet Glynn Tiller has collected some of these poems from the many unpublished ones he has written over the years and has also written new ones in the last six months for a total of forty-four poems.
Tillers poems speak to a variety of lifes issues and are of no particular theme. They acknowledge sadness over the death of loved ones, nostalgia for long-ago places, reminisces of times gone by, the anguish of hospital visits, longing for the advent of a more comfortable time of year, observations of nature along a major highway, and even the rascality of a grandfather.
This collection of poems will cause the reader to weep or to smile, and generally enjoy the authors wonderful manipulation and use of words and phrases. The reader will enjoy partaking of poetry, the dessert of language as Tiller himself has put it so astutely.
