Annabelle Despard

Spring is an old man

Annabelle Despard´s poetry is characterized by its humour, vitality and curiosity.
In this collection, Spring is an old man, the narrator is a mature woman opening up about the experiences of her life, from the time she as a motherless five-year old go searching for warmth. With a lovely will to say the things that you do not usually do, to be sincere and true, she tells us of a life with strong passion, much pain, many losses but also great love.
