REVIEW

FORTUNE SMILES by Robert Wratz, a retired musician who has released two CDs of his own music, is one of the best contemporary poetry collections. This is his first book of poems. The essential point about Robert  Wartz's poetry is its spontaneity, and there is no effort of laborious artistry about it at any time. This is quite visible in the following lines:
I pray for you
I am there for you
I love you

Shakespeare repeats the word 'never' several time to reveal King Lear's agony after his daughter Cordelia's death:

Thou 'lt come no more,
Never, never, never, never, never.

Similarly, Robert Wratz uses musical device refrain by repeating  the word 'fallen' regularly to create remarkable depth of feelings about his great-grandfather in his poem FALLING:

where did that pious child go?
he is fallen
is fallen!

The style of Robert Wartz's poems is characterised by brilliance, melody and simplicity.
