This is My Beloved, by Walter Benton
- I first came across these poems, written in the year I was born, when I was 17, in the late 50s. They are a narrative of a love affair from beginning to sad end. Lines from the various entries have stayed with me for all these years, and still ring true. He opens with “Because hate is legislated...written into the primer and the testament, shot into our blood and brain like vaccine or vitamins... I need love more than hope or money or wisdom or a drink... and only yes can turn the tide...” The poet travels from here into the love affair in diary form and takes the reader with him. It still works after all these years, and so much more experience.
