Davenport takes us along for the ride through his formative years, from the very first time he puts a poets pen to paper as a shy 11 year old child, to age 16 years, as a modestly reflective young man just beginning to find his own voice in the world.Contrary to its title, The Blue Book Of Poems is not a little volume about pain or Emo teenage angst, but a snapshot moment-to-moment commentary of one youths mind and imagination expressed in simple, almost old-fashioned musical verses of poetry. The concepts explored within are as mundane as raindrops falling from the skies come to life, or as lofty as the very nature of the human soul and what it really means to exist for an eternity. All this from a boy then not yet old enough to drive a car.While this is a volume primarily geared to Late Childhood readers and those in the bumpy throes of Young Adulthood, The Blue Book is a poetry anthology that also has a little something for everyone, and can be enjoyed by poetry lovers of all ages. Each poem may be deceptively accessible in language and easy to read in its composition, but the contemplation however, of many of these verses will resonate with the reader long after this brief volume is completed. You will find something within this volume that speaks to you, and it will stay with you forever.Take a trip through the innocence of youth again, and the timelessness of the human heart...take a journey through the color of inner reflection: deepest blue.Take a trip through The Blue Book Of Poems.
