There is sadness in ‘Stopping Bye’ the house of her birth and the feelings of a child is described in ‘Lost Child.’
Then there are several poems about birds and animals and their antics – the greedy jackdaw, and the terns on Sandymount strand getting ready for their annual trip south. The caring diligent cat in ‘Mother Cat’, the huge alligator with enormous jaws looking for food–which could be you, because that is what you are to him. No smiles there, he is what he is with no apologies.
‘Be Here Now’ the guru advises the reader to be in the moment or it is gone forever. Then there is ‘Needen’ the playful donkey who surely lives in the moment.
