These poems are a product of grief and at least partial recovery. They are made of memories, dreams, emotions, and remembered reactions to events. Most were written as contributions to the Live Poets Society at Christ Church, St. Simons Island.

What They're Saying ...

It has been said that the "South" is not a really a place, but instead, a state of mind. Ellison Turner's book of poems, although not about the "South," nevertheless is rimed with sentiments from his southern roots. In this small tome, Turner has revealed bits of his life's journey; part subtle, part direct, yet totally honest.

If so inclined, the well crafted phrases can allow the reader to identify with the writer's melancholy, while at the same time understand Turner's returning theme to a God of his understanding who promises hope for the future. The one and two page poems again and again return to the repeating themes of anticipation, fulfillment and memories. Life - sometimes painful, often disappointing, rewarding and fulfilling, but in the end, like Turner's title, a "Cause of Joy."

Everyone who has experienced life can identify with this book of poems.   --  Duke Smith, SSI, GA

About the Author

Ellison Turner was born in a textile mill village near Greenville, SC in 1929, to parents who were only recently farm dwellers, their parents having moved there as part of the migration to the mill that took place in the early part of the twentieth century in that part of the country. The most memorable event about the year of his birth is the October stock market crash. Turner attended local public schools and graduated from the University of South Carolina but was then immediately drafted into the Army where he served in Korea and Japan. After a brief taste of civilian life he decided to return to the Army serving this time for eighteen years. In retirement he has worked primarily as a high school teacher. Along the way he met and married the love of his life; they have six children. In 1997 he and his wife Eleonore moved to St Simons Island, where he plans to remain and to leave his remains.
