The power of song, to sustain the human spirit, resonates through As if to Sing. Poems about family, the poet's relationship with his sons, the Ceredigion coast-line, this collection is rich in the musical lyricism Paul Henry is known for. As if to Sing is an essential addition to this poet's compelling body of work.
