Come What May
Poems "from a beautiful mind, and also a tough mind"
Kitty Ferguson's review, on Amazon, of his 2009 collection
Once again Henry Disney offers the reader a collection ranging across some childhood memories, youthful military service in Cyprus, his varied experience as a scientist of repute (in Belize, Cameroon, Yorkshire and Cambridge), reflections on people and situations, political comment, his love for his late wife, delight in his family, his enjoyment of nature, and much else; all viewed within the context of his hard headed Christian faith that is more concerned with how we respond to situations and people encountered than with dogma. Compassion, psychological insight and humour are essential ingredients of diverse poems that repay reading again and again.
