The Little Book of Lance.


The Little Book of Lance


I have written big books and now it is time for a little one, a handy little collection of my latest and best poems: just for fun.


I have been surprised and delighted to discover that not only is my poetry understood, it is enjoyed in far distant places all over the world.  This makes me very happy!


Therefore, with all my love, I would like to offer this little book as a heartfelt gift of my humble gratitude, to all of you kind and thoughtful readers who have been so good to me and given me so much: just for you.


I give you then this present, The Little Book of Lance: just for fun, just for you.


I hope you enjoy it.






Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.


As the Little Book of Lance comes out
No braggadocio for me
The self-promotional spout and shout
That do-si-do of vanity
Strikes me as base buffoonery

But celebrating inwardly
Quietly then this book will become
In transcendental victory
My handbook and my vade mecum

When I go out I can show it to
Friends when I meet them and maybe you
In the way my mother taught me
Modestly and with dignity

And may the arrogant relent
If I have seemed so I repent
Pride has chased but has not caught me
For first and last I am but dust

Though I could never tell you why
I write my life down since I must
I live I write and then I die
To give The Little Book of Lance a chance
