and All the Rest of It
Michael's first book of poetry, published in the United
States in 1997, has now sold out. This second edition, in two volumes,
includes all of the original poems together with a selection of more recent
work. These poems are about love, family life, children, work, growing
older, and all the various and manifest stresses of the modern world.
If I Had Listened to My Dad
And now, as I recall those days,
I ask myself,
Where have those years all gone,
And all the joy?
