The first poem in Boston Dialect: Volume One, Ashes Lent, gives a hint at a religious, or at least deep-thinking man in Paul Tait. According to the introduction, none of the poems had titles originally; they were an expression of his on-going thoughts. The titles are intriguing, and the sheer number of poems – more than in any poetry book I have read before – gives a clue as to how much they vary and, to a degree, reflect a fascinating life. But this is more than a life story, or part of one, of a musician – singer, pianist, band leader, and composer - because Paul Tait delves deep into his psyche, and his poetry is powerful due to that. Join him and be enriched by the experience.
Boston Dialect: Volume One is a book that left me wanting to read Volume Two: the sign of a very good book whatever the genre. I confess to a love of freestyle poetry – words unhampered by the need for rhyme or verses - and these flow one into the next like a river running to the sea, sometimes fast with floodwater and at others peaceful. It’s impossible not to choose favourites and these were mine. I Know as Much as I Do: We are the Children of Promiscuous Sin, Art Net Confines – who could resist “The gain and the cost The chain and the frost I can tabulate”? – and I Thought I Knew the Way Back to God. Paul Tait’s Boston Dialect is inspirational; to read his poetry is to pass through a gateway into another world.
