The Greatest Canadian Love Poem and Other Treasures of the Heart is the modest title of this fine and lively collection of poetry written by Allan Glenn Rose. In these pages you have the opportunity to enjoy his vividly accessible verse for clarity of diction, liveliness of spirit, and depth of feeling. Whatever approach you take, you will find that his words strike a responsive chord in your heart. Begin with the title poem and learn the reasons why the poet has written “the greatest Canadian love poem” of all time! These poems – both light-hearted and heart-felt – explore the most basic of human emotions. The collection’s six sections will take you on a journey into your own heart and into the hearts of partners in love, with stops along the way at love, loss, and especially laughter. Here is a book to savour – and to give to a close friend.
Allan Glenn Rose is the author of an earlier fine volume of verse titled Butterflies in Winter. He is a man of great feeling and liveliness of expression and a fan of nature, as the poems in this his second collection attest.
