Verse

My original verse and verse translations have appeared in a variety of print and online journals, and my translations of Middle English poems appear semi-regularly in the Benedictine magazine, Spirit & Life.

My new book (Resource Publications, 2018), In the Bosom of the Father: The Collected Poems of a Benedictine Mystic, is comprised of my verse translations of Swami Abhishiktananda’s (aka Dom Henri Le Saux) French poetry. This is the first time Swami Abhishiktananda’s poems have appeared in one volume in any language and contains a number of poems and sections of poems never before published.

My first chapbook, Lofsangas: Poems Old and New, was published by Franciscan UP (2015) and consists primarily of verse translations of Old English poems (available on Amazon).
