Ode to Malaysia
Author: Farida Jamal
Publishing books has become easier than it was in the past. However, it is more difficult to make people read them, in particular books of poetry. Some of us remain undeterred by that.
Some poems included here were published in Viewpoint (Lahore); MMA Newsletter; Daily Star and New Straits Times. Perhaps someone somewhere will enjoy reading a poem in this small collection. Farida Jamal, Kuala Lumpur, January 2020
