    Richard Burton's poetry reflects a rare depth of intellect and emotion. Seeing the world through the lens of his poetry has enriched me as a person. My favorite poem is Beauty'Sense of Life'because its portrayal of attraction and sexuality contains mischievious ideas in layered and vivid words.

    I was taken in by the depth and force of Burton's poetry. The poem, Human Shadow moved me the most. That poem draws your attention with passion as a river out of existence.

    Book Description

    Sense of Life, an illuminating compilation of prose, explores the differences in human nature with a passionate and sensitive style. Award-winning poet Richard Burton¿s third collection of poetry showcases his vivid strength in bringing verse alive while writing about love, loss, birth, and death. His words describe vulnerabilities, sorrow, and loneliness just as often as they illustrate happiness, the beauty of nature, and simple acts of kindness. In ¿Miniature Portrait,¿ he delicately describes the elegance of the human body: ¿White-oak skin took on love¿s lotion, and passed her smooth voice in a dove¿s wing, wild curves and facial lines framed elegance.¿ In the poem ¿Grace,¿ he writes, ¿I am flawed, though somehow perfect in your love.¿ With his sensitive touch and introspective intelligence, Burton easily draws you into his realistic, and at times, imperfect, world. In the honest style only a poet can share, Sense of Life will leave you knowing you are never alone in your journey through life.
