POEMS FOR MARY
by Ian McDonald
In introducing a collection of my poems titled “River Dancer” I wrote the following about my wife Mary which I am content to reprint here as I reflect on our life together:
“Vibrant young woman came late into my aimless world. She has for very long been a large part of my life. How does one convey in life what plainly means nearly everything? What would a red thing be without the red? Length and breadth without the depth? We say to each other like children “I will love you forever”.
That is true and that truth in my life has informed much of the poetry I have written even when the poetry is not specifically about Mary. Yet many poems have been directly inspired by her and this book contains them.
