by Phoebe Kurtz
Through this collection of nostalgic poems, Phoebe Kurtz describes the unsurpassed love she shared with her husband Robert. Through eloquent phrasing, she takes the reader on an intimate journey into the secret world that she shared with this deep and loving musician.
Her poetry has two facets, which explore the duality of her relationship with Robert. “Halcyon Days” describes the beginning of their love affair, with periods of absolute abandon and bliss. The latter portion, “Tear-Stained Nights,” portrays the pain of mourning that is felt by the wounded heart.
Allow her words to take you on an engaging journey through the human emotions – it is one that you won’t soon forget.
