"Happy Times" is a bitter-sweet journey through childhood. The joy and sadness of discovering the world and its ways are expressed in a child's voice that resonates with poetry and emotion, conjuring up the forgotten observations of innocence on the strange new contours of the world. The author reveals a child's world, a world in flux, growing and changing, a world never beyond redemption even as innocence falls slowly away. The poems move subtly from the simple joys of childhood like ice-cream and Christmas into complex sorrows like the loneliness of an only child or a child's loss of innocence through his first discovery of poverty. The author's touch is light allowing a pure, honest and naturally poetic narration which in turn gives each poem, an honest, fresh and poignant feel that cannot help but move readers.
