Wellington, FL, September 27, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Poet and playwright Wyn announced today the release of Love Calls and Roundelays - a potpourri of poetry and photo art, published by Outskirts Press. Wyn’s impressive collection of artfully conceived poems is accessible and plainspoken, yet rich in meaning, and complemented by a sparkling array of fine photos.
In this new collection of poems, Wyn turns his observant eye on love and other leitmotifs as he reaches for beauty and truth, both in nature and in all the varied aspects of human life. His poems move from vibrant images of starry nights and siren seas to the jolly portraiture of cats and dogs, and insightful metaphor in the life cycle of a chambered nautilus.
Some poems are pure sport, such as “Renaissance Man.” Some portray the seasons, from the cool beauty in “Wintersong” to the electric charge in “First Touch of Spring” to “the heated stir of Summer’s alchemy.” Some search out the dark corners of life, such as the stark “Delirium” or the touching “To a Lost Friend.”
The front and back cover photos: “Radiant Autumn” and “Golden Mountain” provide luminous bookends to this poetry collection. Many poems in this book are vividly illustrated and they are followed by an entire Gallery of Photo-art, including pictures of amusing incidents, and captivating photos of butterfly, birds and beasts, exotic scenes and intriguing people and places.
Love Calls and Roundelays is a little gem of poetry and photo art that invites repeated enjoyment of each of its brilliant facets. To use Wyn’s descriptive language, it is a book that is always “as surprising as tomorrow.”
Love Calls and Roundelays is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.

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 was 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, and an avid photographer who exhibited his photos at Artworks in Richmond, Virginia. 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 diamond-cut ones in this collection.
