Leslie has assembled a fifth "last" book of his poems and short anecdotes. His previous book was a finalist for the Prince Edward Island book awards...he points out that his was the only poetry that actually rhymed!...and this one should be well on the way for the same. As usual it is rich with anecdotes and descriptions of Island life and people. Especially powerful is his daydream in church where he imagines he is stoned! He recounts the long history of a rocking horse that became a sled and working for a contractor in a barn where he is almost buried. The poems cover a wide range of topics including romantic ones and ones about aging. For sheer variety of views of Prince Edward Island, this is the book to get.show more
