Book Review: A Poetic Proposal by Julian Froment

There’s a wonderful little book of poetry, A Poetic Proposal (by Julian Froment), that was recently published and would be just perfect for romantic Valentine’s Day reading and giving. If you’ve ever experienced a long distance romance and courtship, or know someone who has, this collection will ring true to the frustration of being apart and the anticipation of being together. Dreaming and hoping:

On Gossamer Wings
On gossamer wings,
my heart it flies to you…
And soon now,
Oh, so very soon,
the body shall be along…

In the midst of these poems, exchanged with his love, the poet sneaks this one in:

Poor Poetry
I hope you never get tired,
Of my poor attempts at poetry..

Who could tire of receiving poetry from a lover? Certainly not me!

Julian Froment’s collection is like a genle, though sometimes impatient, dialogue. The words seem written to comfort even those beyond the poet and the “love of his life”. Some of love’s obstacles are universal.

I enjoyed reading these poems and hope others will, too. You can pick up your copy at  Amazon US or  Amazon UK,  and read more of Julian’s work on his blog: Julian Froment’s Blog
