Book Details

Easy to Love

The poems in this collection are easy to love – accessible, plainspoken, yet rich in depth and meaning.
As earnest as they are lilting, these poems reach out for beauty and truth - the core of Art.
They are often playful and amusing, as is evident from such poems as “Hey Pretty Kitty”, “Renaissance Man” or “Ode to a Pearly Naut”.

Nor does this book slight the darker side of life, as expressed metaphorically in “To a Lost Friend” or more starkly in “Delirium”.

The visual appeal of the photo-art in this book is an ideal match for the musicality of the poems.

Among the photos, you may be particularly struck by “Radiant Autumn” on the front cover, or the glowing “Golden Mountain” on the back.

What a delightful little gift this book is for your friends, relatives and all those you love!


About the Author


Wyn is the pseudonym for Irwin Shishko, a quixotic old fellow and a master of the art of dabbling. His wife describes him as a Renaissance Man with a small “r”.

An economist in his early incarnation, Wyn spent many years as a consultant to leading firms and governments, and later as VP Chief Economist of an international trading company.

Following early retirement from the business world, Wyn was Chairman of a non-profit group promoting medical research, a student at the Parson’s School of Design, an amateur architect who designed and built a half dozen unique homes, an avid photographer who exhibited his photos at Artworks in Richmond.

Wyn has written two historical plays, and a third one, soon to be published about Mark Twain and the Devil.

When he isn’t otherwise engaged, he writes poems like the luminous ones in his collection.
