Thank you Sujata Chatterjee (Dutta) for the review copy.
This book is a collection of 17 poems. Most of the poems are based on nature and mostly supposedly metaphorical.
The poems in the book are in the following array:
i. Colours of life
ii. The freedom
iii. Every kind of a little thing
iv. Musical notes of nature
v. The rosebud
vi. Come O spring
viii. Beauty stands beyond our touch
ix. Newer horizons
x. Loving you
xi. Gateway to memories
xii. The lake
xiv. A rainbow
xv. The blessed fairy
xvi. The forgotten cottage
xvii. Destiny: Faith or Reason
I liked the 16th poem much more than the others. It tells the tale of a cottage which was happy and prosperous in the bygone years; now it stands for lone, vanquished and busted, crippled with the ages of time. Despite all this, the poet feels there will come a day when the cottage will restore its previous glamour and jubilation.
1. Extremely simple language.
2. Now a day’s rhyme has just been forgotten from the poetry world, but this book doesn’t forget the quintessential essence of glee one gets while reading a poem which rhymes.
3. Caters to all ages.
4. The poem which didn’t appeal me was the tenth poem Loving you because I found it very superficial.
5. The inclusion of related pictures along with the poems makes the book appealing.
6. The cover is sweet.
