Here is a book of poetry that covers a wide variety of topics, love, nature, cultural social, political and spiritual issues of the Jamaican people. The book is entitled 'Seasons' named off one of the poems that reflects on the different seasonal changes in natures and likens life to them. Just as how nature accepts the various seasons gracefully, this poem explains to individuals how to recognize and accept life seasons willingly. If we recognize and accepts these there will be no regret, life will be full of joy because this is the order of the universe.

This book, in its introduction gives a clear-cut description of eight basic styles of poetry writing and sites examples of each in the book. It's an excellent book to introduce young minds to different styles in poetry writing. The greater part of this book is written in Standard English with one chapter written in Jamaican dialect. Humour is not left out the poem 'Mi lass' and 'Weh di man dem' are classic examples and put you right into the center of the Jamaican way of life ' There is also a glossary which gives the meaning for most of Jamaican dialect used in the book.
