    I received this book from the author in return for an honest review I very much enjoyed this collection of poetry I read this cover to cover in one night; in one sitting I found that Daniel Klawitter's poems were very approachable yet retained a lyrical uality to the writing I was impressed by the author's use of rhyme Klawitter really has some amazing ways of rhyming words And what I mean by this is what he rhymes a word with is not what you would expect; it is not the obvious choice at all It is not even the second third or fourth most obvious choice They are rather obscure rhymes but rhymes that work beautifully I have much respect for a poet who can pull something like that off Also Klawitter uses slant rhyme and internal rhyme in his poems to wonderful effect It makes the poems have a smooth uality that someone who is not aware of things such as slant and internal rhyme will not realize why this is And the only reason I do is that I studied poetry in several college classes Another techniue that was used often was alliteration This helped to give the poems a lyrical uality to them Klawitter also successfully uses form to his advantage When it comes to the variety of poetry in this collection these poems run the gamut They're are serious poems and ones that are much lighter It is a good balance of each in this collection with poems that are in between these I read in a review in the back of this book that described some of Klawitter's poems as heavy light verse Discussing heavy subjects in light verse I think that this techniue can be used to much success Klawitter does all of these very well in this collection I would recommend this to any fan of poetry As well as to anyone who has been wanting to get into poetry and is looking for where to start A definite 4 stars3 Amanda Leighhttpgirlwithapenandadreamblogspot
