Written over a number of decades and covering a wide range of experiences and aspects of life, Today and Yesterday has been described as:  “A compelling and poignant collection of poetry … the vivid and colourful verse will captivate readers, drawing them into each piece and holding them until the very end. … The intricate and intriguing themes will leave many readers reflecting on their own lives and experiences as they are taken on an extraordinary and thought-provoking journey.”
This new book of poetry from David McMichael seeks to attain a balance between the modern and the traditional, the real and the dreamlike, ‘today and yesterday’. Only the reader can decide to what extent this is achieved.

David McMichael is a doctor living in North West England, where he shares his time between the Ribble Valley, and Keswick in the Lake District. Whilst now retired from medical practice, he maintains an active involvement in health care matters.
His other interests are family, all forms of the arts and science, nature and the countryside, fell walking, foreign travel, world ecology and the environment, and golf. He writes for his own enjoyment. He is the author of the novel, Shadows in a Photograph, published to high praise in 2016.

    Great poetry draws you in, knows when to use its voice, knows when to hold its silence. Let's you dwell with the emotions + thoughts evoked. Today and Yesterday by Dr. David McMichael is a book of simply breathtaking beauty. For poetry lovers everywhere + for those who aren't so sure, it's a must read. It's a book I will always treasure. It's a book I will re-read.

    Full of thought-provoking poetry and prose - Farewell bought me to tears, what a beautiful poem. A book worthy of a place on my bedside table for a long time to come.

    "Today and Yesterday" by David McMichael

    This is a book to be treasured throughout life. It portrays so much of life and is written with great width of subject and depth of feeling, full of imagination, encompassing youthful delight and deep sorrow, and great appreciation of the natural world. It paints vivid pictures with dramatic brevity of words, the punch lines hitting out forcefully and indelibly. Would that mankind remember and learn from poetry such as this.

  • Joycelyn Bradshaw

    I have owned this insightful poetry book for several months. It has given comfort, induced tears and stimulated thoughtful reflection in equal measure. A gem to be enjoyed and treasured for sure. Thank you to the author David McMichael.

    I must say poetry isn’t really a go-to for me, but some of the poems in this were just absolutely beautiful. Not only were they lovely words, but they were also so cleverly written. My dad is a fan of poetry and I’ve lent him this to give it a try and see what he thinks, I just know he will love it as much as I did! One for my keeper shelf for sure
