In this collection of verses some have been taken from my earlier collection, "Gleanings". There are here more for the very young, ranging up to poems for the not so young such as "The Cauldron", "A Wedding Song", and "Intimations of Joy". They are all about life or observations on life. "Intimations of Joy" points towards the nature of real life and a vision of what that might be like. Whatever is reflected in any particular poem the underlying philosophy is that life has meaning and how we live it is very important. In the end we come to realize that we are pilgrims who are making our way back through many obstacles to a paradise whose nature is spontaneity and joyfulness.
