In his entree work offering a portion of the verses produced during the last decade Minstrel Martin proffers both poetry and illustrations to tickle the fancy and cause the reader to delve a little deeper into himself. The candid, often stark stanzas offered on the pages of THE SILENCE BEFORE DAWN are creative, often musical and always artistic. The poet¿s efficacious manipulation of portraiture generates intense, descriptive images for the reader. The work is a meaningful, thought stimulating composition. Lyrist Martin has accomplished something which is so difficult to carry out he presents art in it¿s most courtly mode. Martin offers genuine declaration without confines. In his medley of stanzas Martin touches the essence beneath the planes of our lives. The reader is urged upon a extraordinary journey filled with passion, unanswered queries as well as those which are answered as the poet sees them. The writer obliges the reader to in fact do some thinking in this vocative work.

The poetry in this book is beautiful yet raw and gritty. The powerful use of imagery paints vivid pictures in the readers mind. It is a thought provoking and moving piece of literature. It's very refreshing to read poetry that is so unconventional, it's art in its truest form..true expression without boundaries. Henry's poetry reminds us of our strengths, vulnerabilites and our human fragility. Brilliantly written!

Any artist on creating a portrait can draw the beauty seen in the face, but to capture the soul beneath is the challenge. In this collection of poems, one can read the words for their beauty alone. But read deeply, the artist shows us the soul beneath the words, taking the reader on a unique journey of expanded thought, emotions, and unanswered questions. Courage required, reader beware!
