This book is a compilation of 50 poems documenting significant moments throughout the years, culminating in her 50th birthday jubilee and Jamaica's 50th independence. "Fifty years is noteworthy as in biblical terms it represents a time of celebration, a time of renewal, a time of new beginnings."
The poems in this book were assembled to provide a resource conveying material that can be utilized for: bedtime reading; social occasions, school and church recitals; as well as for 'leading' discussion topics. To that end, this book does not have to be read cover-to-cover to be effective. There are three themed sections for easy access: "Ode to Miss Lou," – written in the vernacular; "My Soul," – introspective, and; "Let's Talk," – provocative.
Those of us who have been influenced directly by the Hon. Miss Lou as well as all Jamaicans owe her our gratitude. She opened our ears and our eyes to what is truly and uniquely Jamaican. So Dr. Sue, we welcome this new book and companion CD that so radiantly capture the spirit and essence of Miss Lou.
