Germander Speedwell

Germander Speedwell has been reciting poetry since before she can remember, and writing it as soon as she could hold a pencil. To the great good fortune of the poetry-loving public, most of her output has been mislaid over the years that she and her family moved around the globe behind her military father. Happily married for ages to a man who indulges her by pretending he knows the difference between a simile and a metaphor, she gets her kicks from writing and reciting her own poetry, often to herself. Germander is older than she'd like to be.

About Book

Whether poetry is strange or familiar to you, Germander Speedwell has
penned a collection of short and sweet verses that will cheer and
charm the beginner as well as intrigue the connoisseur, for her
verse rewards re-reading in its deceptive simplicity and
experiments with verse forms.

Whether speaking of the sea, love, dewy dawns or beaches, of the Old Lady's Cave or Miss Pewsey,
with tongue-in-cheek tips of the hat to Yeats and Thomas Hardy;
or of nature or frustration, gardening or death, sailing or just hanging out the
washing, Amid Summer Nights' Dreams will say it in clerihews or
haikus, in sonnets or nonsense verse, tankas and triolets.

Whether you are at home with poetry or just want to relax, open Germander's
wooden-clasped book and see whether you could be the reader who "has
found his prize: peace, love, and grace."

Oh, and watch out for the green-eyed lion...
