In Perhaps One Day, Jenni Wyn Hyatt’s poems include childhood memories, nature, the tragedy of war, social commentary and accounts of her personal life, both poignant and humorous. Most of her poems use traditional rhyme and metre, poetic forms such as the ballad, the sonnet, the villanelle and many more rubbing shoulders with the occasional piece of free verse. All, however, are clear and accessible to poets and non-poets alike.
Although she writes in English, Jenni is Welsh to the core and, true to her heritage, her poems sing to the reader with clarity and compassion, sincerity and humour, intensity and truth. Readers will return to this collection again and again, each time finding a new facet to explore and enjoy.
