• The Wordsmith

'The Wordsmith' is a collection of gentle poems filled with carefully observed moments of family life, nature and love. 


The poems were written over the years by Joseph B. Martin, who was a National School Principal in Derrywash NS and a very active member of the loca community. Benny, as he is known to his friends and family, takes inspiration from, and sees meaning in the minutiae of everyday encounters and the passing of human exchange.


The collection is a rich reserve of joy and frailty which Benny captures with his customary humour and pathos. It is a delightful read which will leave you with a smile on your face and an appreciation for his skillful turn of phrase.
