0 Reviews
All The Stars Are Snowflakes is an inspirational, thought-provoking poetry book with poems featuring such topics as the total stillness and quiet of a snowfall, the impish antics of a busy squirrel, and always, the glory of God.
Fr. Ralph Wright, who is a poet of great distinction, pens works that reflect his knowledge of and respect for the masters. His images are both beautiful and startling; his metaphors perceptive, his use of rhyme natural.
His expertise lies in the unity of word and idea that is the essence of poetry. All the Stars are Snowflakes is one of eight books of verse. The poetry of All the Stars is never obscure but nevertheless demands that we return, again and again, to delight in and savor both words and subtle meanings.
All the Stars are Snowflakes offers a soothing escape from the pressures and turmoil of every day life.
