Leonard Lambert

It’s hard to think of another poet, here or anywhere, who manages to convey so much in so few words, or with such delicacy and lightness of touch.

Description

The wry self-observer of Park Island and Natural Anthem is still there … but now, more often than not, he’s grinning from ear to ear. Was there ever a love poem quite like ‘The Good Oil’ or, for that matter, ‘Skywire’? Here in Leonard Lambert’s fourth collection we find a poet at the top of his game. The book is a lyrical feast. Enjoy!

To wobble into love at the dingbat end of your sixth decade is remarkable enough. But to find someone who shares your own background & foreground as painter, hard-yards poet and self-created individual is, I would guess, way out on the loopy end of any probability curve you could ever come up with. The dance & wonder of all this, its fizz and sparkle and sheer eye-opening unlikelihood is what these poems sing and celebrate. Bon voyage! — Leonard Lambert
