The Mermaid is Unimpressed, Paperback / softback Book

The Mermaid is Unimpressed Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A personal poetry collection, including poems inspired by a lifetime of adventure.

Some poems are short and sweet, others more reflective. Poems cover themes from ageing, retirement and grief to the delights of her grandmother's hat, gardening, mermaids and Nordic walking sticks. Sandy Kealty is a poet, musician and performer. She writes poems in a direct, free-verse style, and this is her first published collection of poetry. From the author: 'They told me to write about the things that I know, so that is what I have done.

In this book, I celebrate and reflect upon my own experiences and the people and places intimately connected to this lifelong voyage of discovery. Because I also came across pure imagination on the way, there may be some pieces of work where, however hard you try, you will recognise no person, living or departed, nor place identifiable on a satnav.

However there will probably be elements that, should we be acquainted, will remind you of me.'
