This sizable collection of poems is a mixture of love poems, little stories and reflections on life. Time and again I felt I was reading lyrics, and, indeed, many of the pieces in “Winter Chill” lend themselves to being set to music. The thoughts are not contorted and the verses would “sing” well with musical back-up. As poems, some of them strike me as good while others seem to be cut-up prose. Compression, rhythm and careful word-choice are some of the things I look for, and not all of Lady Tracilyn George’s verses have that. However, many of the thoughts are delightful. About love, George writes “It’s an addiction / That you can’t beat.” Shakespeare would agree whole-heartedly! However, as the quote shows, there’s prose there more than poetic skill. “The Service” is definitely a reflection on contemporary life, in this case lousy service and food at a McDonald’s, and seems to me to fail as a poem. As a reflection and a little story? Quite OK. “Lovelust” is far more skilled and the break in the lines effective, and as the title suggests it’s also big food for thought. Maybe I should quote from “Lovelust” and end my review. I could draw attention to the frequent references (for example, to the sea) or the effective rather than boring repetition to reinforce a message and create poetic effect or those carefully crafted "hidden" rhymes. These techniques are very appealing.
However, let’s end with Lady George giving us her oh, so feminine insight : “Let us lose ourselves / In each other’s arms./ Let the warmth / Of our bodies / Abolish the chill / Of the night. /……I am your love slave.”
