Thank you for your review, Pearl. To everything there is indeed a season … now the October poems are alive once more and indeed I am enjoying them.
AllAboutAngels was written in memory of, and dedicated to, Roger Moore’s wife’s aunt. This book is a celebration of life and an exercise in remembering those who have completed their journey and gone on, leaving us behind. But more than poems about the loss of our human loved ones, Mr. Moore’s verse cries out the end of the cycle of life for wild things, and even describes the heart-wrenching beauty which can be found in the death throes of the seasons .
I read this book for well over a week – not because it was difficult, but because the poetry was sublime…sometimes sad, sometimes disturbing…mostly bittersweet…always emotional.
Here’s a ‘for instance’:
“September Angel” by Roger Moore
turning on the tree
spells the end of summer
though warm days linger
by a burnt brown sunflower
