"This collection of nature poems is resonant and appealing. They record lyrically the beauty of the landscape of USM campus that is just an emerald at the edge of the straits, with dense trees hundreds of years old, little enchanting slopes, and valleys adorned with plants, as well as clear, clean lakes and flowing waters. Most interestingly this is expressed through moods of the months and seasons of an equatorial climate. All the more so, when these poems are accompanied by sketches which are also captivating."

multitude of ideas."

"? translators ? let the poets words bloom and sing. My good friends, Md. Salleh Yaapar and Lalita Sinha, have lent their exceptional talents to these poems. I am sure the beauty of their rendering will carry these poems beyond the shores of Penang and Malaysia."
