New Release: Pagan Poems!
"Pagan Poems" is an illustrated collection of poetry written by Carolyn Emerick. The poetry is inspired by myth and folklore, the beauty of nature, the human senses, and, of course, love.
This collection is the antithesis of "modernist" styles of poetry. Stylistic influences include classics such as Byron, Poe, and Shakespeare.
It will appeal to those who love classical lyrical poetry, rhythm, rhyme, and meter, and to those who love to be transported to misty other realms of the mind.
The volume is richly illustrated in full color to aid in the full aesthetic experience.
Currently, this book is available as an e-book in PDF download, and in print from Amazon.com.
