A Child of Nature presents a collection of poems that are reflective not only of poet Ilda Poshi’s personal experiences, but also of the troubled experiences of her social environment. A journey into longing and love, warmth and loneliness, sincerity and sarcasm, and profound contemplation, her poetry offers a shared world of spiritual depths and simple joys. The emotions cover the spectrum from the love expressed in “Retrospection” to the loss and abandonment of “In Absentia.” Poshi’s images are elegantly crafted, highlighting even the smallest of details. The description and imagery illuminate the theme of each poem. Something is always leaving or departing—unfinished, much like life. Pretty may this child be good and right may this southern wind blow and veer may this mother watch the light may this flowerbed stridently cheer may this poetry never writhe or end may this peaceful romance increase its flows may your beauty life befriend may these bells stop their heart-rending echoes may this cuddle gently sway may this love affair be gritty may the people refrain from fray may your image remain pretty may this love affair be gritty may your image remain pretty
