Comments on Mike’s poetry:
I can’t remember when I enjoyed a book of poems so much; possibly ‘Season Songs’.
Keith Sagar (on Di Placido’s ‘Theatre of Dreams’)
Shrewdly, comically, with Blakean innocence, Mike Di Placido writes about enthusiasm and inspiration: how in practice we read poetry and fall in love with it.
In these poems Ted comes alive again, he lives and breathes. These poems are healing gifts.
