Summary

'Light verse' suggests frivolity. You would indeed have to search hard to find deep meaning in, for example, the title poem and 2002: A Space Fantasy. Some, however, like Zing-Zor, Glorious War do contain a more serious message, although conveyed in a light way. 
The primary purpose of all 76 pages of this poetry collection is, however, to entertain. For more serious - though I hope not unrelentingly grim - poetry have a look at SCENES FROM SEASONS (but not that sort of season).
Available since: 07/01/2019.

    LibriVox volunteers bring you 19 recordings of The Window on the Hill by Madison Julius Cawein. This was the Weekly Poetry project for April 22, 2012.Madison Julius Cawein was born in Louisville, Kentucky, the fifth child of William and Christiana (Stelsly) Cawein. His father made patent medicines from herbs. Cawein thus became acquainted with and developed a love for local nature as a child. After graduating from high school, Cawein worked in a pool hall in Louisville as a cashier in Waddill's New-market, which also served as a gambling house. He worked there for six years, saving his pay so he could return home to write. His output was thirty-six books and 1,500 poems. His writing presented Kentucky scenes in a language echoing Percy Bysshe Shelley and John Keats. He soon earned the nickname the "Keats of Kentucky". He was popular enough that, by 1900, he told the Louisville Courier-Journal that his income from publishing poetry in magazines amounted to about $100 a month (Summary by Wikipedia)

    In Love in Thin Places, David Grieve, a chaplain at Durham Cathedral, invites us to join him as he walks around the greatest of the Northern cathedrals. In this building that has offered sanctuary, silence and space for prayer to many over the centuries, we meet not only saints like Cuthbert, Bede and Godric but are also confronted with the questions and concerns of today's pilgrims and visitors and not least the chaplain himself.
    
     
    The poems have been written over a period of thirty years, in some cases as a direct result of personal experiences or impressions received while at the Cathedral. The Cathedral is a Thin Place, where the distance between the close presence of God and the realities of life on earth seems to shorten. This is building with its many functions as a house of worship, music, art and other exhibitions, university graduations and all manner of events is itself a medium through which we can draw closer to God, speaking as it does of him.
