About this title


Poetry can offer a unique glimpse into the writer’s emotional and spiritual life. Through the experiences and insights of others, we find a focus for our personal contemplation. "A Splendid Heart" gives every reader such an opportunity. Melvin Lightford’s quest to examine his inner life developed from his belief that people must recognize and accept their true selves in order to be open to the will of God. He invites us to join him:

Passage to dry land, come see thee
I must show love and have love in
my heart. As the roses touch each
other, I see many vines and sights
of wonder and joy.

Designed to encourage each reader to explore their own experiences in their search for meaning and purpose, "A Splendid Heart" is a finely crafted work. The candid, reflective images of these poems will linger in the reader’s mind long after the book is closed.
