Whip-Poor-Wills and Fireflies

by Margaret Rose Green


Poetry writing is something that is done for the sheer pleasure of putting beautiful words and unique thoughts on paper.  It is the most liberating form of creating writing.  Poets have complete artistic freedom to build something meaningful out of nothing, simply by stringing words together on a page.   That is why poetry is so diverse:  a poem can be joyful, mournful, whimsical, nostalgic, or whatever the poet wants it to be.


Whip-Poor-Wills and Fireflies, written by Margaret Rose Green, is a poignant collection of poems divided into four sections:  Early Musings, Sonnets from the Heart, The Adirondack Seasons Song Cycle, and The Later Poems.  All of these poems are passionately written reflections of Green's thoughts and life experiences, which makes them universally appealing.
