The Child of Happiness is a book of poems written by author Stjepan Varesevac Cobets.
It’s been awhile since I’ve taken the time to read good poetry, and this book was like a breath of fresh air. I felt a connection with many of the poems.
The poem layouts were simple and easy to read with good content. I really savored reading each poem out loud. A few of my favorites include “The Old Man,” and “I Kissed Her.” Here is one I feel would be wonderful to recite daily…
Endeavour to be happy every day
To look for beauty in dewy mornings, silent and early,
And when you see yourself in a mirror, wash your face with water
To take off the difficult moments and old hazes.
Think about love, for it is the beauty of your soul,
It will warm you up while the cold wind is blowing.
Through storms walk upright with a smile on your face
And that which you have for yourself, give to everybody freely.
Having written poetry in the past, I feel inspired to write again after reading this book of poems.
I’d like to thank Mr. Stjepan Cobets for sharing a copy of his book with me and I’m looking forward to reading more by this author.
About the Author:
I was born 12.09.1965 in Split, Croatia. I live and work in Kastel Sucurac, where I finished my elementary and secondary schooling. At a very young age, I started reading. I loved it because, through books, I travelled to places I could never visit in person. As a child, I loved fairy tales and adventure, but later I discovered other genres. When I found a Jules Verne book in the library, I became fascinated by science fiction. I’ve written poetry for fifteen years, and later started writing science fiction. Lately, I’ve written children’s fairy tales and fables. I’ve published, in Croatia, “An Opened Heart” in 2002, “The Sleepy Way” in 2005, and “Love” in 2006. On Amazon I have published the poetry collections “The Child of Happiness” in 2015, science fiction novel “Godeena” in 2015, the science fiction short story “Butterfly” in 2016, and the poetry collection “When the moon takes over the dream: Love Poetry” in 2016. – Goodreads
