Cold Against the Heart

Hugh MacDonald’s poems sing of the Maritimes, and what it was like to grow up by the sea. He talks about the memories of a grandfather, walking in the woods with him, feeling safe, and carrying the axes and buck saws and hardboiled eggs.

He writes about farming on Prince Edward Island where he grew up, and where the earth is hard and red. The poems revolve around church life, and the daily life of making a living on the eastern seaboard, buying a car, a first marriage, and the loneliness that a writer can feel when he is left with his thoughts.
