An Ogham stone and quern face my green sea. The wild fuchsia, the fern and eucalyptus tree recall your sad face. Remember it better than me. One recent day, Beth Green unearthed a bundle of papers from a drawer next to her Viking stove. The papers contained poems and musings penned by her husband Robert—some typed on an old Royal manual typewriter, and others handwritten on beer mats, table napkins, and the backs of envelopes. After deciding the poems told a fascinating story of a creative mind while detailing sixty-plus turbulent and emotional years, she decided to organize the writings and then share them with the world. Green leads others through his life experiences while vividly reflecting on a variety of relatable topics that include nature, love, the desires that come with life, the four seasons, the familiarities of gazing in the mirror, the thoughts of a dictator, an unforgettable moment between father and daughter, the sound of children playing, and much more. The Third Drawer is a resurrection of a collection of poems unearthed after years that share lyrical insight into one man’s journey through life as he observes, loves, and remembers.
