‘Do yourself a favour: buy this, curl up in your favourite chair and read it, knowing you will come away refreshed.’
Life is a complex thing. As social beings, we live side by side, sometimes in not so harmonious circumstances. This book celebrates love and tackling the challenges we face as humans. Control is not always ours.
Do your best.
Life is complicated, yet very simple.
‘These poems are layered and more formal — with an air of William Blake or even Christina Rosetti — but without pretension or anachronism. They still have the Lawson touch.’
‘Lily Lawson has this way of making me weep.
And understand myself a little better.
And understand others, perhaps, a little better too.’
Lily Lawson is a poet and fiction writer living in the UK. She has had poetry, short stories and creative non-fiction published in anthologies and online in addition to her books.
‘My Father’s Daughter’ has poems referring to her Mam’s dementia, the church volunteer roles she held and her experiences as she began to take her writing seriously. ‘A Taste of What’s to Come’ is a varied selection of poems which give some impression of the range of her work. ‘Rainbow’s Red Poetry Book’ is the first of the Rainbow Series. It celebrates love and tackling the challenges we face as humans.
She is currently studying online for an Open Degree with the Open University. She loves reading, watching American TV, eating chocolate, listening to music, and hanging out on social media (not all at the same time!)
