Poems of the Living Present
Published by Rockingham Press
Poems of the Living Present includes the long poem – ‘Suddenly Man and his Earth’ – one man’s apocalyptic vision of a world destroyed by greed and heartless hedonism. Not only were the fruits of science and learning squandered on creating a world of servants and the served, but the Earth itself was changed. And with it died poetry and love – “and the Creation was left empty of songs of meaning”.
