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. 

 

Mark Tredinnick

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.

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

There is so much in it, so much to it... it roars and it sings and it startles.

‘The ink from Peter Ramm’s pen courses through Waterlines as the Wingecarribee courses through the Southern Highland landscape where these poems take place. Eloquent, melancholic & breathtakingly beautiful, these poems, these almost-hymns, rejoice in the poet’s love of this landscape and read as tender love letters to his sons. Replete with gentle, evocative imagery, each line shimmers, as though the gentle rays of the Southern Highland sun were upon them.’
