Reviews

Verna Penn Moll writes with simplicity of structure and a clarity that brings her subjects into sharp focus… strong and compelling, her imagery excites and involves… her flow of language draws you in.

Annie Taber (M. ED) Adult Community College, Colchester, England.

I admire Verna’s poems which seem to me to capture the authentic flavour and spirit of a wonderful corner of the Caribbean, where over fifty years ago, I worked as the first Education Officer.

( Thomas D. Green(M Ed.) York, England)

Sample Poem

PELICAN DIVE

In the land of my youth
the brown pelican dives
intelligence
that fishermen may know
where fishes beat
in schools.

Sun shines through rain;
periwinkles smother weeds
along the roadside;
while the spreading
bouganivillea
ignores drought.

The queen conch-shell
announces the catch
that breaks nets
and draws a village
to itself.
