|JOHN SNELLING: SIREN SONGS|
This is a little chapbook containing light-hearted verse:
There was a man who thought that sheep Were watching him while he was asleep Once, he awoke and counted thirty four Which sent him back to sleep once more.The above is called THE PARANOID. The booklet is entertaining, with hints of a different approach as in FOUR SHORT POEMS:
The shadows of swallows leaving the evening pool Wind gently moves the long grass.John Snelling is experienced in literary matters, with a degree from Ulster, and further studies on H G Wells. It seems it might be worth his while exploring haiku in detail academically too. A pleasant read.
