Constructed of Magic and Other Poems on the Immortality of the Human Spirit by Louis Alan Swartz has a variety of chapters on subjects we can all probably relate to, such as death, love and marriage, children, sanctity, and hope, among others. I do not usually read very much poetry, but when I find poetry that I like, it tends to stay with me.
Such is the case with this book. It is filled with moving poetry that you can relate to, and understand, and truly feel. An excerpt from a poem titled “You Should Have Been Here Tonight”:
You should have been here tonight.
In truth you were here.
In the last light of sunset
There was a laughing presence
Unmistakable at the gardens edge.
Filled with beautiful imagery and positive energy, these poems paint a picture in the mind’s eye of the way things used to be, the way things could be, and the way things should be. You will easily find comfort from the poems on these pages.
