Lloyd found the art of classical English poetry while battling Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He has been in remission for over ten years now, which amounts to a cure. In an effort to stay busy, he started to write “Roses Are Red” style poetry. With ten grown children and over two score grandchildren to think about at Christmas, he decided to publish his first work. JungleBerry Poetry: Favorites Edition is a selection of more than one hundred from the multiple hundreds of poems Lloyd has written. The selections include a broad potpourri of humor, 1940s childhood nostalgia, philosophy and other works. Lloyd sees classical forms as templates that assure a poem will sing well and uses poetry as a storytelling vehicle. His children’s poetry is extremely well done. JungleBerry is from an old verse about Robinson Crusoe drinking Jungle Berry Tea with his man Friday on a deserted island.
