Marshall Armstrong – The Water eats the Land
The Water Eats The Land (Poetry)
“The Water Eats The Land” is a poetry book about life. The joys and sorrows, the ups and downs of each day are things we can all relate to. Many people think that poetry isn’t fun to read until they happen across the right book. Reading something that is familiar, that you can relate to, makes it worthwhile. The poems in this book are about work and play, love and friendship, death and disease, loss and war, communication and desire. Marshall’s style is mostly “free verse” which means it’s easy to read. A few of the poems are rhyming but they’re not frilly love sonnets.
So whether you’re a poetry lover or not, this book is sure to have something you’ll like. You’ll find yourself laughing and crying about how crazy and how normal life can be.
