FOREWORD (from 'Putting it into words')
When I was first introduced to the poems and lyrics written by Terence Anthony, what struck me immediatly was the eclectic nature of his work.
His stories, for that's what many of them are, cover a wide variety of subjects, and range of feelings and emotions, from the light hearted to the profound, the ordinary to the ethereal. From the sad and the serious, to the happy and the optimistic.
Terence writes about the lonely and the sad, the peaceful and the mad, Heroes and Dreamers, Winners and Losers, Lovers and Thinkers, and of course, places revisited when memories take us there.
Over one hundred poems and lyrics are presented here, with the mood
and the theme constantly changing, as each page is turned.
We smile when we read "The Nightmare" or "Spider Talk", are sad when someone dear to the heart is lost.... that is the theme of "Michaels Room", "The Boy with No Tomorrows" and "Pascal (so little time)".
There is the romance of "The Last Seat on the Bus" and "Paris-Texas, Paris-France",
Nostalgia with "Echoes of Paradise" and "Chapters One to Nine".
But there are also darker moods, as in "Breaking Stones and Aching Bones",
"The Ghosts of War" and "Night People".
"Stories from Joe's Diner", "Chromium and Steel"
and "The 'Kabin' (isn't open anymore)" have an 'Americana' feel,
along with the very special "A Place called Monte Cassino".
The final part of this 232 page book is a collection of quotations,
again showing the light and shade, the variety of the author’s work.
Sometimes thought provoking, or heartfelt, sometimes amusing
and ‘tongue in cheek’.
Terence Anthony's ability to paint pictures with words, with quality, originality, and sincerity, is a special talent that should be recognised and applauded.
