My debut full length poetry collection

Whatever love is for, poetry does that: Peter Ramm’s book is an instance. The collection Peter has crafted is shapely and wise and beautiful.

These are timeless poems – long linocuts and etchings of nature and place.  Ramm lays down his lines like a painter, creating sketches of family and vignettes of life.  Each poem is a beachcomber walking with wonder along the waterlines of a perfect beach. 

—Damen O'Brien

Waterlines doesn’t read like a first collection. Which is not to say it isn’t fresh or exciting. Rather, that this is a poet at the height of their powers ... People who adore the great Australian poets Judith Beveridge or Gwen Harwood will love this collection
