Here and There

Here and There

Inspired by the places, people and sounds around his home town of Morell, Prince Edward Island, Roderick MacDonald pens lycrical poetry that nourishes his reflective nature. Especially inspired by the shore line, MacDonald evokes feelings and memories of Island days spent whiling away at the beach, breathing in the salty air and listening to the sound of the waves. He also writes evocatively about many aspects of the Island way of life throughout the seasons, from a rainy, spring day to a the experience of sharing pint of beer with a friend. The poetry of MacDonald's collection Here and There will resonate with both Islanders and people who love P.E.I. It is the perfect companion to any bedside.
