About the Book:
From the Elusive Muse's Lexicon is a second volume of poetry to accompany the earlier, "A Storm in Pandora's Tea Box". It touches upon a diverse range of subjects, from a homage to London's beloved River Thames, a trilogy of Coventry poems anticipating the City's role as UK City of Culture in 2021, tributes to departed musician friends, plus reflections upon sources of inspiration and sometimes consternation, as we navigate a course through life's amazing and often challenging journey.

Sample poem from the collection:
“In the Globe and Rose there Shake-Speare sounded,
Where Milton and Blake did first awake,
Here Boswell listened as Johnson expounded,
Where Dickens walked the dark streets of his prose
In this city that never sleeps, of Marlowe
And of Pepys, heaven knows
Their legacy into its very fabric seeps,
Where the distant past and future meets
As the sacred river flows, contains
London’s pulse, its heart and veins,
Yet the ancient river rolls on to make
Its way with great momentum, the quantum
And invention, under lows and highs of London skies
Within its people’s daily joyfulness and strife,
To crystallize the hopes and dreams that rise
Along its winding course through London life.”
