Sing Love 101 is a billicious gourmet platter with 101 love poems in which this wordsmith worth his words brings together the good, the bad and the ugly of human love experiences. The poems are glossed with the simplicity of a sweet gentle breeze that caresses the reader’s heart like that blowing across his childhood rice fields in the summer. The poet highlights “Love” as “the Dream” none should let die. This is a compelling volume to read.

“The 101 poems in this stunning collection are noted for their lushness of language and simplicity of style exploring a wide range of emotions while embodying the fearless passion and spirited wit of a poet to whom like Pablo Neruda, words are fun. […] this collection bears the best poetry for new or old love; requited or unrequited; fulfilled or unfulfilled […] as underscored in the concluding verse of the ‘The Musical Hand,’ ‘Loving infinitely as we do is nothing but wisdom for nothing other than wisdom is infinite!.”
Festus Fru Ndeh, Associate Professor of Postcolonial and Theoretical Literatures, Troy University, USA
“Bill offers in his poetic practice true structural complexity, highly verbal with mastery of literary devices and symbolic representation, while at the same time showing himself capable of Blakean epigrammatic terseness… as in ‘Val (Veracious, Admirable, Loveable)’. This love poem is of impressive simplicity and yet gains great power on that account. The 101 Love poems in Sing Love 101 are simple but with great POWER on that account.”
