Anita Downey's poetry covers a wide range of topics, with themes of nostalgia, pain, joy, freedom, art, and life amongst others. The pain of a nation is highlighted in the first poem, and then the author reminisces about her childhood, wonders about the realities of life with her astute sense of noticing the people, animals, and objects around her and encourages us to dream more.
The poems evoke vivid images with their rich descriptions and scenes of everyday life. There are poems that will resonate with everyone. Written in no order, the poems can be read anywhere and will bring forth memories and feelings of one's own similar experiences.
