Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Drakes Branch, VA - Mar 29, 2018 - Ellen Leech, who formerly spent twenty-five years working for the Chairman of the Board at Warner Bros. Records, has completed her new book, “Come to the Edge”: a provocative and dazzlingly compassionate poetry compilation inspired by everything the author has seen, heard, thought, and felt about the human condition during her long and colorful career.
Ellen shares, “I’m tired of hearing the woes and the pain
Of those who seek ‘rehab’ again and again
You pose for the mug shot, a few nights in jail
Soon after drunk taillights back blazing the trail
It’s time for the people who have money to burn
Settle in, get some wisdom, there’s much you should learn
Millions are starving, babies need drugs
Not to get high on but to kill off the bugs
The system is broken, our kids are a mess
A judge so impressed with the price of a dress
Thousands and thousands spent on a rag
With another one’s name emblazed on a tag
Is ‘Who are you wearing?’ the name of the game
The sickening sweet stench as false beauty wanes
What can you do as the earth cries in pain?”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Ellen Leech’s new book is an exemplar of lyrical poetry that pays attention not only to important social problems and the biggest questions facing humanity—it also lends a careful eye and ear to the musicality of the medium through which Leech expresses her views, her heart, and her hurts.
As is the general aim of all spiritual and socially conscious art, Leech’s poetry expands one’s mind and heart, with the same compelling storytelling-in-miniature that characterizes the most timeless songwriting in modern culture. The reader drawn to the melodic appeal of Leech’s verse will come away with deeper things to think about, and nobler things to aspire to.
Readers can purchase “Come to the Edge” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
