First But Great Experience

This is my first experience of E.M Makins, and I'm an instant fan. Normally my taste runs more to prose than to poetry. But I love the quirky quality of the poet's mind. He writes a poem to his lover's feet, for example. Everything he writes is unexpected.

A good poetry by a simple poet

E.M Makins's insights are rare and valued to those who parallel true love itself and were not written to illustrate fictional action on the behalf of the casual listener.

I enjoyed this book

This book states most of the love poems that are good for a man to say to a woman. It has kind of the old romantic sayings.
