"Simple Heart" Whispers Love Songs!
 
Review
By Ellen Tanner March
New York Best Seller Author


     
        
Anyone who has has ever loved - and loved well - will find
something to appreciate in Ted Kapsalis' book of poems, Simple Heart.
 Sensual love has inspired poets throughout time, and Kapsalis has a gift
for evoking the delights of such love in lively, accessible language.
Here we are told of the warmth of a smile, the thrill of a kiss,
the sensuous caress not only of touch but of words sweetly expressed,
and the yearning of a simple, loving heart:
"Unselfishly tonight I'll unlock the secrets/the devotion of my love/as the
world is watching/my heart shining like a star."

               But Kapsalis' simple heart is an unguarded one, too,
and like so many lovers before him he has known his share of betrayal and loss.
The pain is there in words edged with raw emotion, as
"with her lying eyes...she darkens my
dreams of paradise".
Or of hopelessness, as he laments in the poem Tired of Running:
"Good things it's dark. What am I gonna do/when the light comes?"

               Simple, honest and evocative, this is poetry that speaks to the heart,
from the heart.
