1 y separately published work icon Poetry D'Amour 2019 : Love Poems Andrew Burke (editor), Inglewood : WA Poets Inc , 2019 22104179 2019 anthology poetry

'Here, in the following pages, we have 90 Poems to test the freshness of Love and Poetry. Sincerity and Creativity combining together in a bed of Tradition, forever refreshing the boundaries of Love.  Judging them and awarding distinction to some and not others was a tough task. After 60 years of writing poetry myself, many of them teaching the mechanics of verse, I appraise a poem’s sincerity as much as its technique. On that basis I would like to print all entries! But I had to be practical and lean on the objective side of judging. So I looked for poems that were the vehicles for the transportation of sincere emotion—with some wit and skill in writing.'
