“This is the kind of love poetry that will endure”

I am a little bit flabbergasted by the following excerpts from a review of Woods River Road by John Sewell

Not because I don’t agree with it.. far from it.. I am just so happy to read a review that really gets a poet – and explains the book to a soon-to-be-reader if you have any sense!!

This excerpt is part of a review written by Kevin Bailey in HQ Poetry Magazine (No55&56):

This is a book of unashamedly sensual poetry.
Never crude, always aware of the ambiguities generated by love and passion, there is throughout the poetry a Lawrencian tenderness and much personal insight.
The natural world is so well observed and recorded that it becomes entwined in a menage a trois with the poet and his lovers…
Edward Thomas meets Verlaine…
This is the kind of love poetry that will endure.
