“Butterflies in Winter and Other Poems” is an attractive-looking book. The design of both covers is attractive and appropriate for the book’s contents. As for the poems, there is not a “false step” anywhere. The author is a poet who knows what he is doing. He has the talent he needs to sustain the poems he writes. The poetry deserves to be read from a platform or a podium, as the poems and verses beg to be “heard.” There is wit here, a donnish sense of humour, and “shaggy-dog” approach to life and literature. There is also a sense of fun with life and words and pretensions that I like, conveyed by the child’s smiling face on the front cover. — John Robert Colombo
