Title: Leaves painted gold to please a child
Description: Brugge, Van de Wiele, 2009. 120 pp. Soft cover. Text in English ∂ The hitherto much-travelled poet Marcus Cumberlege, winner of the Eric Gregory Award and widely published in Britain in the 60ís and 70ís, settled with his Flemish wife in Bruges shortly before the canals were sanitated and the New Wave of tourism was unleashed. In several previous collections he has described the beauty and mystic charms of his adopted city and of her inhabitants. The poems in this book are mainly autobiographical, personal and intimate, with an emphasis on spiritual growth. He often adds to this his own blend of humorous observation. His aim in Leaves Painted Gold To Please A Child, published to coincide with his 70th birthday, is to provide a Western Buddhist's colourful spectrum of experience, feeling and vision in language open to a broad public.
