5.0 out of 5 stars The author's sharp eye for detail make this a must-have collection of poetry, 30 Jan 2013
A superb book of modern verse. To me this is more than a poetry book. Unashamed, daring and incredibly perceptive. This is evident in "Opium" where the reader is able to not just feel but also smell and taste the love that was lost. Many of the poems are experimental, and all of them work on many different levels. Split into five sections this book could easily have been five books, so strong are each of the poems in it. As a rugby fan I enjoyed "Train Lines" which I found myself nodding my head in agreement as I recollect times from the past. Whether he is writing about the natural world, wildlife, this fragile environment we all share with each other, the author's control of every single word is wonderful. After reading this book a few times you realise nothing has been left to chance. Passionate and creative. An overused word these days, but not here, this is truly a great slice of literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars SAWING FALLEN LOGS FOR LADYBIRD HOUSES, 11 Oct 2011
" FALLEN LOGS........." is a collection of beautiful poems and free verse.
Dave Lewis, is an ardent environmentalist, seeing so much beauty in the Natural World.
Dismay at urban environment decay is described . In all the poems., there is a great richness of vocabulary . Written with compassion and intelligence.

My favourite poem is "one Kaleidoscope Autumn" about Dave and his young daughter.
The last lines
" Coated against cold
through the bat dry night ,
gazing up at a trillian answers "

Wonderment and magic of simple things !
Images created in the mind ,when reading these poems ! Awesome.

A definite place on everyone's bookshelf
