Lyric & Verse Anthology
by David Cocklin

SALVATION [sal-vey-shuhn] The act of saving or protecting from harm, risk, loss, destruction, etc. Redemption. Salvation: Lyric & Verse Anthology brings together an expansive collection of stories and reflections on a myriad of topics; from love and lost love, to hope, conflict, spirituality and philosophy. It ranges everywhere from a deeply personal introspection right through to a broad spectrum of social observation. The emotionally evocative tales are littered with truisms, sarcasm, symbolism and analogies, while keeping the reader engaged and intrigued. Lyricist David Cocklin maintains a great variety in his tone, inflection, and subject matter all through the whole collection, so it never feels like the monotonous exercise of a single voice, and never sacrifices the integrity of the thought to the rhyme. His observations, their insights, the color and nuance, and his sheer creativity of expression is fully deployed.

"...the observation, the insight and the sheer creativity of expression... utterly original,,, emotionally evocative" —Rhonda Hayter, Editor
