What some readers have said about Pairs…
“Over the years, I’ve trained myself not to cry but PAIRS broke the dam. A second reading even better than the first. I shall take it to bed and wallow. AT THE WAR MUSEUM, WAITING FOR YOU and A WORD FOR SHORT ROMANCES. Oh, me, oh my, oh myline! As Lillian Beckwith used to say, “Beautiful just!” I recognized the poet in you on first meeting, a million years ago. You give life to Ted and Ken and how many more? Pears as adept as the poetry. I should hate you but I don’t. Congratulations on a wonderful achievement to you. In awe!” Jo M.
“Such delightful poems! I marvel at the skill of the poet in conjuring up such magic with mere words!” – Jean G.
“A copy of Pairs was a well-received gift to some friends on the occasion of their 60th wedding anniversary – couldn’t think of anything more appropriate.” – Julie C.
“Sensitive and right on!” – Arlene K.
“I love the way she [Mary Yuill] observes, she sees more than most of us do. So much sadness, and also such strength!” – Dinii
