Sheens in the Shadows by R. Prince (Bob) Payne

Here we have another book of poems by another regional pastor. Again the poetry is marginal. And in this case it’s a self-published volume. This book seems to find a reader or two every other decade. Though I think this library needs to reduce the number of volumes of poetry whose sole recommendation is religious sentiment, this one still has enough attention to leave it on the shelves. The binding is coming undone, but since it gets little use, that’s probably not problematic at this point. I recommend discarding it once the binding completely lets go.
