BOOK-BLURB:

The Other Side of the World and Back is the shared intimacy between two friends, Aurealis-Award winning children’s author Sally Odgers and six-time Dana Literary award-winning poet Sara Webb Quest. The book uses experimental, sonnet, and other forms to convey stark reality, pure fantasy, comical and love poems. A private peek into the established bond between two women on opposite global ends whose only communication has been through the written word, this is the companion follow-up edition to The Other Side of the World.




EXCERPT:
 

Other Side of the World and Back (To Sally)

 

 

1

 

I hear a magic, songlike voice.

A voice that’s crystal clear,

Ringing sweetly within my soul,

The voice of you, my dear …

 

2

 

My sister-friend, please sing again

Inside this, is your page.

Take me to your dark, inner den

A new, fantasy age.

 

 

3

 

A rosy hue, you will imbue

With new worlds I know not

Until, my friend, to me you rend,

One not to be forgot.

 

4

 

And so it is, that so will I

Give a laugh to you, a sigh,

And share my world, a silly poem –

You can call it a new home.

 

5

 

We’ve never voiced a single word,

But, you, Sally, are always heard.
