    Book Review

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

"A Poet’s Kingdom" is a unique collection of verse from Joseph P. Policape. It effectively serves the needs of its poetry citizens. What you can find in this new collection of poems is a beautiful rainbow of existence: happiness, sadness, pride, hope and displeasure, regret and perspective, grief and joy, the simple thankfulness of God, nature, and life. The Death of My Brother, The Death of My Sister, My Temperament, To See Heaven and I See You in Nature, My Daughter’s Eighth Birthday and Someone Believes in Me are just some of the many titles you will be reading about in Joseph P. Policape’s new book of poems, "A Poet’s Kingdom". Mr. Policape deals with just about any issue you want to read about in his unique poetic style.

In these interesting, enlightening and entertaining poems, you will find peace, comfort, promises and calmness. You will laugh and sometimes shed tears as you read through this wonderful book. Most of the poems are much longer than this one, but I choose this one to give you a little taste of what you will get in Joseph Policape’s book. Here it is:

I Have Hope
My life will be terminated.
To go to Heaven is my only dedication.
But I must never allow myself to be tempted.
I must never give up to greediness.
If I want to worship in God’s congregation
I must never give in to things
That will jeopardize my soul.
I won’t die, but I will change location.
Heaven is my only destination.

I really enjoyed the inspiration and encouragement I found throughout this book. I really want to encourage you to pick up a copy of "A Poet’s Kingdom" for yourself. You will find many hours of fine reading here.
