David Tas' 'Poems from a Marriage' takes readers deep inside the author's life, through his five-decade blissful marriage, love of the land and the pain of supporting his wife's illness.
Hailed “beautifully written” by critics, this extremely frank, emotive book of poetry grounds readers in what it ultimately means to be human. Nothing made David Tas prouder than being a husband to Phil (Philomena) for forty-seven amazing years. They shared their love with friends, family and all life around them. While David was at Phil's side for every day of her fifteen-year battle with cancer he gained strength from her spirit and will to live.
Now, in a unique fundraising effort for The Royal Marsden Hospital, David retells their life together through heart-tugging poetry. 'Poems from a Marriage' tells the story of a great love through poetry, from meeting his wife and sharing a long and happy marriage. The poetry ranges through their courtship and marriage, romance, a love for the countryside, farming, illness, and the inevitable grief of her loss.
