This is Johnny Perrem’s first publication. These poems were written between 2004 and 2017. The subject matter covers a broad range of topics: his parents; some of his eleven siblings (both alive and deceased); his wife, Bernadette; his children, Nathan and Lucy; and his granddaughters Nessa and Elizabeth, both born about one year ago. His experiences in and feelings about fighting several cancers (four) are explored. Some are reflections about previous relationships with special women over the years since his youth. He describes his thoughts and feelings about a few friends and his eldest stepdaughter, Aoife. A few deal with political events.
