Glimpses - short poems giving 'vignettes of experience'. A few words say a lot! Many and varied topics, some are more serious, many are humourous.

This is a book of 99 short poems in 132 pages. They are glimpses into life - vignettes of experience told - a few words that say a lot! Written by retired English psychiatrist Dr Audrey Coatesworth, it is her latest book of poetry. Her other books are written for all ages, from Poems for 3-7 years through to 'the elderly, mature' age.

All the books can be bought as either paperbacks or ebooks via MY BOOKS or Amazon

Excerpt
A remembered voice

I had a song in my head
Like an echo from the past
I cannot turn back time
And it didnít last
Yet, the voice sang to me
As if someone had sent
A message, not by letter
But by what the sender meant

The song was one the singer
Could not have ever known
It wasnít written at the time
So that tune she couldnít own
How strange it was to listen
To the voice from days gone by
Yet, somehow it was remembered
And I didnít even try

Copyright Audrey Coatesworth 2014


Reader Reviews for "Glimpses"


Reviewed by Richard Orey 5/1/2015
I love this.

Oftentimes, I blurt out to friends and/or family a bit of obscure knowledge and hear the question, "Where did you learn that?" Most often, my answer is, "I don't know. It's just something I picked up along the way."


And now I know how to answer: "How strange it was to listen to the voice from days gone by, yet somehow it was remembered, and I didn't even try."


With that kind of answer, I'll probably get more stares. But what the hell! I love that I often have "A remembered voice."


Richard
