​​​​​​CANDICE JAMES  Poet Laureate Emerita,  New Westminster,  BC  Canada 

“Rithimus Aeternam” (Rhyme Eternal) is  a collection of rhyming poetry sectioned into eight themes: Surreal; Love; Nature; Dark; History & Story; Whimsy; Cowboy Poetry; and Miscellaneous.  "You can hear the country and the blues in these poems, with lyrics leaning toward ballad and popular song style form. The painter's life, aging, mortality--this is the veteran poet James' territory of the heart, with more than a few lines that remind you of Leonard Cohen." ~ Trevor Carolan, M.A; Ph.D; poet; novelist; film producer and  Editor - Pacific Rim Review of Books.
