Overview

Verse-wise, witty, and—above all—deeply felt.

Author Herbert Edward has written many poems., beginning in his high school days, with by far the greatest number having been composed during the decade of the Sixties. As I made selections from these early poems. (1962-1964), it seemed to me that, with a few exceptions, they are not unduly dated. "The more life changes, the more it is the same thing." Hence, the title Gleanings, of what harvest the reader may judge for him/herself.
