Thelma Blaxall Releases Second Volume to Nature Echo Series
The themes in Thelma Barlow Blaxall's Nature Echo Series Book 2 are enthralling reprises of the purity of faith and virtue she uses as the lodestone of her rhymes. Many of them, of course, are connected to nature or natural imagery as the collection's title would suggest, but readers will find it a pleasant surprise that they mostly spring from heart-driven thoughts and enduring recollections of memorable experience, good and bad.
The author's aim to always connect with nature is sublimated into life. Her poems are alive with Blaxall's own brave thoughts of the past and bright hopes for the future. Unspoiled nature is echoed in the purity of her lines, of her wish to always come back to a pristine, unspoiled place-as exemplified by a poem called "Childhood Innocence" which tells readers that, "Common lives and common thoughts/ Are the stuff which life has brought/ If God's grace would be a part of his intent,/ Take, receive what he has sent."
In sum Blaxall achieves what she's aimed for-to make life echo the natural ideal. She chooses her lines well, for unspoiled beauty and simplicity. They always flow with a spiritual grace-heaven on earth is what forms within readers' own imaginations as the poet continually echoes nature as God intended it to be appreciated by mankind.
