Marion H. Flanigan's New Book "The Pale Cast of Thought" is a Rich and Varied Collection of Poetry Distilled From Years of Reflection on Life's Uncertainties

Press Release ( - SWANSEA, Mass. - Sep 18, 2018 - Marion H. Flanigan, a Columbia University-educated poet, newspaper reporter, homemaker, and married mother of three, has completed her new book “The Pale Cast of Thought”:  a radiant, posthumous collection of epiphanies.

Marion shares from her book,

“My God have pity on this thing you made

To struggle with itself, to wage hard war

Deep in the narrow passes of its veins

And dark embattled caverns of its skull;

Blood fighting brain, will fighting intellect,

—The soul exhausted and the body torn

Between desire and denial, between

Sleep and the sleepless task, between the flesh

Sheathing the ribs, and hunger in the heart.

I am a traitor to myself; my soul

Is a lone country, bleeding itself white

In civil war: so split, I scarcely know

Which half of me is friend, which half my foe;

When I must make allies and choose between

The lean gray knight who grapples with the gloom

For perilous foothold, or the courier

With scarlet plume, and golden spur, who leans

From studded saddle, bidding me to halls

Aflame with torches of a thousand sins.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Marion H. Flanigan’s new book is an eloquent and visionary tome from the heart and mind of one of life’s more astute observers.

Fresh, thought-provoking, and touching, the late poet’s poems are now collected to lend some of their light to those who look for meaning in the words experience produces.

Readers can purchase “The Pale Cast of Thought” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
