BlueRose and Other Chapbooks

(2012)
A collection of poems by

 
Originally ephemeral pamphlets sold by traveling peddlers, or 'chap-men', chapbooks have enjoyed a long and illustrious history, surviving in print form from the sixteenth century until today--in fact, much contemporary poetry has first appeared in small-press chapbooks, most frequently folded sheets stapled in the crease. BlueRose compiles ten chapbooks by Michael R. Collings, with publication dates ranging from the early 1980s to 2011. Individually they explore a variety of themes, topics, and forms--the wit and cleverness of limericks; the ethereal grace of haiku; the directness and humor of children's verses. One of the chapbooks contains only short poems, several of them one or two words long; another is a single extended look into the mind and career of one of the greatest sixteenth-century poets through the mediation of his mother's will. One celebrates vitality and energy; another celebrates loving memories of lives well spent. All present readers with carefully chosen words woven into thought-provoking lines. Fans of Michael R. Collings's work will find in this new collection a treasure trove of words and thoughts and feelings to savor and enjoy.
