Details

Poetry is celestial—sunny blue skies
and alternately dark clouds veiling silver linings. 

Enter the vivid, witty, and endearing thoughts of author Robert Louis Covington. His is a long and fruitful life enshrined in varied verse. The poems are concise and yet sublime, and thus have a certain charm and power that pulls in the reader's heart.  

Poetising with the Divine is one man’s story of love, struggle, appreciation of beauty, joy, passion, and challenge as he grew up in urban America. Indeed, this is the story of everyman growing up in 20th century America, set to verse. 

The author sprinkles his poems generously with his firm spirituality. His writing impels us to slow down and take a profound view of living: its beauty, struggles, tragedies, joys, passions, and challenges. 

Poetry is a depiction of all life.

 

About the author

Robert Louis Covington is the son of sharecroppers from South Carolina. They migrated to Washington, D.C., where Covington spent most of his life. He draws inspiration from his vast experience, which includes baseball, racial conflict, seeing his father marching off to fight in World War II, and catching live bands performing at theaters in post-war America.

Today Covington lives in southern California and is a member of the Inland Empire California Writers Club. He worked for the federal government for 32 years and has been married to Cynthia for 59 years. They have two grown children and enjoy family life and all that goes with it. 

Covington has written quite a bit of poetry in recent years, and is working on his life’s story. He owes it to his dear mother who named him after Robert Louis Stevenson, Scottish novelist, essayist, and poet.
