Author Dorien Grey, née Roger Margason, has had a life-long love affair with words, which he uses to paint large murals of books and to paint small, intimate portraits of the human condition and the human heart. His subjects range from spiders to sinking ships, from longings for lost loves to letters written in the sand with a bird-quill pen.
While all human beings have unique life experiences which set them apart from every other human, there is a universality of hopes and dreams we all share.
These poems are intended as small mirrors in which it is hoped you may catch glimpses of yourself.

Delighted! Wonderful poetry!
Mr Margason is an excellent wordsmith. His inner world of beautiful, detailed thought comes to you in the measured soothing voice of Mr Schine in a most pleasing fashion. He speaks of love, desire, and aging, with a tender worldliness that I found friendly and warm. You go to places exotic and fanciful, you meet with characters kind, and unkind, bold and fragile. Mr Margason is sensitive, subtle, and keenly observant. Whatever one's sexual orientation, the issues of attraction and desire, of persistent longing, of success and rejection, are clearly universal, and Mr Margason handles them with wisdom and wit, and with careful attention to the craft of poetry. All this gives Mr Schine a vehicle in which to give an admirable performance. This work, his voice, is a pleasure to listen to. Musical, tastefully understated emotionally; just the right notes. I replay the file often, and I'm sure I will continue to in the future.
The boy with the poppyseed rolls; he is beautifully drawn, inside and out ( in the first-person, and the third person) I often return, mentally to that little cafe in that far away land- it's so beautiful!
Yes, though I like to have the pause button handy. I digest a bit more slowly than the momentary break between the individual pieces allows.
Treat yourself. This is very good. I do recommend it!
