WILLIAM MONTGOMERY by Quincy R. Lehr
But still, a sneer could not have hurt me more
Than her clear laugh that sang of expectations
So long forgotten from a distant day
When youth still spread before me, and the poor
And pitiful attempts at explanations
Still lay in ambush, only years away.
Quincy R. Lehr's poetry has been described by MICHAEL O'LOUGHLIN as "intellectually rigorous and displaying a serious engagement with poetic form", by JOHN W. SEXTON as "a wonderfully strong and powerful collection", LIAM AUNGIER has described Quincy as "one of the finest poets I have had the pleasure of knowing", and FIONA SAMPSON declared in the Irish Times, "These long, busy poems demonstrate much energy and narrative talent."
