Valley Press releases today “There Are No Such Things As Seagulls“, the fourth book of poetry by author David Agnew, aka BelfastDavid. The 60 poems in this new book have Whitby in common: they either are about that Yorkshire town by the North Sea, or written there. And we find the sea and his contemplating over it, on almost every page, while his calm words are reminders of waves, and his puns – screams of seagulls, of which things there are none of course, still they echo with every page turned.

A book to drift away with, preferably somewhere on a shore, when a smile, some reflection or words of comfort are needed.

  1. Looks good, right up ‘our’ street. 🙂

    • Hi David
      it is a fine looking book! 🙂 the cover is a painting of Whitby by Jan Richardson.

  2. Can’t wait to read, Ina. I LOVE the cover!

  3. When the jerk tourists feed the seagulls at Miami Beach you find out fairly quickly that there ARE seagulls. I’ll allow you to speculate why.

  4. Thank you Ina very much for this review.

    You are a lovely lady


    • Hi David, you are welcome. I wanted to place it on Amazon, but I couldn’t somehow.

      🙂 That is a lovely compliment, thank you.

      Arohanui 🙂

  5. Thanks for the take on this poet Ina.
