If we should ever meet again

The poetry in Richard Trembath’s If We Should Ever Meet Again cannot be described as modern or classical but where its difference lies is that it will appeal to and be understood by the common man.

This collection is wide-ranging and explores life, love, philosophy and much more, as did his two previous volumes of poetry and short stories.

And the Moon still shines

Witten during 2020

when everything changed.

And many things may never

 be the same again — ever.

We have been forced to dig deep

to find our positive core values.

In these pages find Hope, 

Joy, Comfort and Strength

to live in a time of disruption.

I hope these poems will inspire 

you to discover your inner strength

to live through these challenging times.
