Forthcoming Poetry Collection

For some time I have been working on pulling together a new poetry collection, the provisional title of which is Leaving and Other Poems.

The collection consists of both serious and humorous verses, with the former taking up the lions share of Leaving and Other Poems.

I hope to send off the manuscript for proof reading by the end of the week, with a view to the book going live on Amazon in late January/early February.

As with most of my poetry books, Leaving and Other Poems will be available in e-book and paperback. Many readers (including myself) still enjoy the physicality of paper books. Indeed I find that many younger readers become tired of screens and relish being able to sit down with a paperback or hardback book.

Once the collection is available I will post links to the respective formats on this blog.

If you are interested in receiving a free copy in return for an honest review please do contact me at kmorris poet (at) gmail dot com, (the address is rendered thus in order to defeat spammers who click on email links and bombard people with unwanted junk mail)!

Life is full of light and shade. For to be human is to experience joy, beauty, love, pain and laughter. This collection reflects all facets of human experience. hence the title ‘Light and Shade; serious (and not so serious poems)’.

An update to my review page

I have updated the ‘Reviews of my books’ page (http://newauthoronline.com/reviews-of-my-books/) so as to include a number of recent reviews in respect of ‘Dalliance’.

A disillusioned Man Of The World’s Song

A rhythmic motion

Like a ship upon the ocean

Your legs swung

But to me no joy brung.

You spoke in a foreign tongue.

No songs where sung.

You where young

Eighteen or twenty

Our hearts they where empty.

Yes you where young,

Your feet in heels swung .

I see them swinging still

I have had my fill

Of desert beds and swinging legs.

Love to me is dead.

When The Party’s Over

When the partys over and deflated balloons litter the floor,

Will you in joyous tones cry out for more?

As the final guest, their face a mask slinks out the door,

Will you in a hearty voice exclaim, “this way of life I adore?”

When lingering odours of celebration sicken and appall,

Will you with equanimity the night’s events recall?
