A Winter's Soliloquy by Richard Doiron
As a poet whose specialty is rhyme, and as a voracious reader of the genre, I read Richard Doiron's rhyming and metered verse and have visions of someone like Robert W. Service, the famous Bard of the Yukon. Having read Richard's work for some time now, I have to say that this poet has no peers in my mind. His epic poem, "A Winter's Soliloquy" is quite spell-binding. When one considers that this is an 800-line poem, and that the rhyming scheme, throughout, has been maintained, with near-perfect meter, this speaks highly of the poet indeed.
I suggest that anyone who reads Richard Doiron's work will be as captivated by it as I am. Without question, this is a master at rhyme. I look forward to reading his work, which is always vibrant and artfully penned.
