Little Suites by Deborah LeFalle


Little Suites is a collection of poems inspired by the author’s reflections on her childhood – delightful and tender moments, as well as trying and sometimes unpleasant moments that helped her develop as a humane being. Each poem individually contains thematic linking characteristics and together they form poetic suites joined by the common threads of memory, appreciation, innocence, curiosity, imagination, kinship, reality and growth.
