KIRKUS REVIEW

Poetry that is pleasing to the eye and ear, light, facile, with fine sense of rhyme and rhythm, but all in all not important as marking any particular originality or making any contribution to modern verse. Some of the poems are in Parker, Fishback vein, though not as tart, nor as wise, but definitely above average. The majority are serious, though not overly so, and deal with love and nature and religion. Lyrics, primarily, with a tender charm.
