Do you want to return to a time in your life when things were wonderful, filled with people you loved, with dreams that you had, when the world was simpler and the future glistened?
And do you wonder what happened, where did those years go?
The answer, my friend (no, not with Bob Dylan), is with you inside your head, all the good and some of the bad. The answer is writing it down – it’s still there – in poetry. Reading others, writing your own. Think back – it’s still there – look back, look forward… poetry. Do you recall those violet-infested walls of that old English church; that girl you saw and never forgot in a tavern once visited; that old town you first taught in and that noisily funny dunny-cart man; the fear of being trapped in a crashed car with petrol dripping; resting in love with a beautiful partner; dangling a line in a beautiful river with beautiful sons?
It’s all there, deep down, relived and reloved, in poetry.

Jim Hale is a retired senior high school teacher, who specialised in English literature. He taught for 40 years, in country NSW and city schools. He has three children and eight grandchildren, who have added to his wide experience of the joys and tribulations of life. These experiences are expressed in his poetry, written at first for family and friends, and now shared more widely in published form.
