East Anglian Odyssey in Poetry (Paperback) (Leslie Hopton)
about this item
Les Hopton takes the reader back to the mid twentieth century in An East Anglian Odyssey in Poetry.
In Victory in Europe, he reminisces; "They celebrated all night long, with food, drink, dance, and song, the people had earned the right, to celebrate on V.E. Night."
The poems are often interspersed with beautiful imagery, evoking a sense of nostalgia.
In The Bluebells, Hopton describes how, "Their blooms, azure, a sheer delight, seek out between the branches, shafts of light. There they inspire us with the hue, those special carpets of dazzling blue."
A diverse collection to dip into and enjoy.
