BOY OF FALCONRY
COLLECTION OF FALCONRY POEMS, BY JAMES WEST NELSON.
"closed couplets" shown below are just a small sampling of the 43
poetic verses Jim Nelson offers in Cabin Boy of Falconry (A Collection of
Falconry Poems). A body of work spanning nearly thirty-five years, this booklet
examines almost every aspect of our sport in a variety of formats (from rhyming
to free-form; from haiku to limerick).
If you don't get a chuckle from "A Gathering of Prey" you may
not have a sense of humor. If you don't
get a lump in your throat reading "My Happy-Go-lucky Warrior" you may
not have a heart. This small but potent
booklet makes a great gift for the falconer in your life...or for the
non-falconer in your life (if you're a falconer). One falconer's wife told the
author, "Even after 14 years of marriage, I never really understood why he
does this, until I read your book." Book size is 8.5” x 5.5” with 67 pages. 5169 CABIN
