Song of Ron by Ronald Steven Kaplan is a collection of poems, or songs as the poet puts it, that give glimpses of the poet's views on love lost, love celebrated, love sought, humor, and humanity. Since many of the poems are lyrics, they have a good rhythm and beat and they express the poet's emotions, thoughts, feelings, sensations, vibrations, and imagery in an entertaining and lyrical way. The poems showcase his immense love for music, love, and humanity, and they will take readers on an engaging ride where his words will make them ponder and reflect on love and mankind. The language of love is universal and many of the poems are relatable to readers.
There are many poems in the book that fascinated me and made me think. One would be 'All and All'; I thought it was thought-provoking and deep. The other poem that struck a chord within me would be 'Life is but a Dream.' 'Fifty Years' is another favorite poem of mine that beautifully captures the poet's love for his wife in the most basic and charming way. The poet's ability to use simple language yet capture emotions and feelings in depth is quite amazing and that is what makes the poems and lyrics in this book appealing. Every song and every poem in this collection connects well with readers and I would definitely recommend Song of Ron by Ronald Steven Kaplan to all song and poetry lovers to have in their personal collection.
