POETIC LIMERICKS: Information About "Potpourri of the Mind" [cached]

Contents of these pages ©2000, by Joel D. Ash

While it is too late to suggest its use as a Christmas present, it's not too late to make a strong recommendation to all classmates on behalf of Joel Ash's recently published book of limerick poetry, entitled "Potpourri of the Mind". It has both humorous and serious verse and is marvelous way to start the new year.
From the editor of the Class of 1956 Newsletter:
Joel Ash's book, "Potpourri of the Mind", is a delight - - the whimsey and humor in Joel's limericks come through often enough to keep you reading on. "To See Or Not To See" (page 100), six stanzas about the frustration of having to get (and find) eyeglasses, was so true to life that I had to laugh. Joel's poems are often timely - - he has one about Hale Bopp and the Heaven's Gate sadness. Although he admits to having a dark side in his mind, most of his poems are light-hearted and readable.
While you and I were groveling with some prurient, unsavory rhymes, Joel Ash was moved by a more lofty vision. The book consists of numerous multi-verse poems. Not all are serious, one selection relates how the devil's wife romances him into getting an icebox so their son can have ice cream on his birthday. A graduate of Dartmouth, Ash brings Dartmouth and New England themes into a number of his limericks. Most are reflective - - embracing what it means to be human. You will want to bring this book out again and again to share with your family and friends. And, you will say, "I wish I had written this book. I cannot say enough good things about POTPOURRI. Mr. Ash knows all about meter and rhyme - - and he has chosen to use that knowledge for good.

Front cover The jacket and internal graphics for my second book were designed by my son Kevin, who also did that same work on my first book. It was a hard task for him to surpass the work done on POTPOURRI OF THE MIND, but somehow he has done just that.
Joel D. Ash has been an amateur magician since the age of eight, and he still puts on an annual magic show for his grandson's birthday. The above picture was taken at that time. The section of the book entitled "Magic and the Occult" contains eleven poems which reflect his many years of study in that area. Mr. Ash resides in Weston, CT which he considers a place of magical beauty.
