Vincent Moore - The Canadian Poet

Three Books of Poetry

Vincent Moore's  three books of poetry are finally available in print. His latest “In Passionata” is one of them.

The Canadian Poet

Vincent Moore is a Canadian poet born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. He grew up in a predominantly Irish area known as Point St. Charles. Life in The Point during the 1950s, and 1960s, is the inspiration for much of his work and the result is a poignant and poetic marriage of tenderness and pain. He now resides on the Canadian Prairies.

Vincent Moore
I am a big fan of Vincent Moore. The first time I read his work, I was immediately captivated by his gift of words, and I have been following this fine poet and his writing for over two years now. I encourage anyone to become a follower of his beautiful poetry website, 
On his website this talented and intriguing poet will share his poetic journey with each and every one of us. His unique poetry is deeply soul stirring and will not leave his reader untouched.

A while back ago, I purchased the Kindle version of the book “In Melancholia” It's a Poetic compilation of memories, thoughts and emotions of this poet's darker side of his childhood. Through his pen he writes about poverty, violence, booze and pain, so strong and gripping, that many times, I can't hold back my tears. 

Life can be cruel yet only we can help ourselves to crawl from the darkness of despair” is an excerpt from “In Melancholia.” Vincent Moore is a survivor and a true example of finding his way out of the darkness by following his poetic path, and to become one of today's greatest poets.

Vincent Moore makes us understand, the heart of his healing is through his burning pen, and through his writing he inspires and brings hope to so many of his readers.

Not only do I admire his strength, compassion and wisdom but also for the very fine and brilliant writer that he is. To catch the essence of this amazing man you have to read his work, and I promise you, you'll fall in love with this poet and his gifted quill as much as I have.

I have just purchased his third and latest poetry book " In Passionata," but in a printed form this time. I can hardly wait to hold it in my hands. I'm so happy that this poet finally decided to let his fans/followers have the ability to purchase his poetry in a printed form. It's a stunning collection of poetry to own.

"In Melancholia" can be purchased at Vincent Moore's Website

In Absinthia can be purchased at Vincent Moore's Website


  1. Oh my, how wonderful a review of my work, I am simply touched by your kindness my sweet friend. I never expect reviews such as this, but when they come I am speechless. You have shone a light in my little corner of the world with your accolades. I am deeply moved and thank you always for your support and promotion of my name and work.

    How kind you are, if you were here I would wrap my arms around you and hug you so close to show my deep appreciation for your generous time and consideration of this humble poet. Hugs and kisses from me to you. I am indebted to your friendship from afar

  2. Dear Vincent, it comes natural to write a glowing review when it's about such a gifted and beautiful writer as yourself. You have a tremendous gift, my friend. You are one of the best poets, I have read, and if I can share your writing with even one person, I'm happy, because I know, that person will embrace and cherish your writing as much as I do.

    Besides that, you are always so supportive and kind to your fellow writing colleagues.
    You have always encouraged and supported me and my writing, and I will always be thankful for that.
    My love and hugs to you, my poetic friend,

  3. Another excellent review, Sannel and I hope it helps drive more readers Vincent's way. He certainly is a gifted poet deserving of an even broader audience than he already has. His writings inspire us all that it is possible to rise above unfortunate circumstances to a place of strength and success. Indeed, Vincent would not be the amazing poet he is had he not experienced the things he writes about so poignantly and so well in this book. Thanks for sharing Vincent and his book with us. You've done another wonderful job!

  4. Vincent - Rick. . . What an honor having two of the finest poets that I know of, visiting my humble blog!

    Rick, thank you for your kind and beautiful words regarding my review. It means the world to me. I know you are a huge fan of Vincent and admire his writing so much. He is so gifted, and he is also so very supportive and encouraging to others and their writing.
    Thank you Rick for your time and wonderful comment. It's much appreciated, my friend. :-)

  5. Thank you, Sannel...after way too long and thanks to you, I am discovering and signing up for my friend's websites.

    Vincent's writing is high on my list of favorites, with a style and presence all his own. As far as friends, they don't come any finer, just like you...come to think of it! Love you both, Maria

  6. Maria, my beautiful, sweet friend, thank you for all the joy that you bring to your friends.
    Love you!
    Hugs and blessings,

  7. Sannel, I am in awe of what you have shared here with your fans and followers. I too have followed your work since I first met you through Colin at the Hubs. You have taken this poet on a journey through your gifted writings. I am so thankful to have friends like you here who support my work as well. Writing poetry comes naturally to me now, although I never penned a word of it before 2009. I truly believe my Muse found me after all these years. Now being able to share 60 of my most read and reviewed poems in printed book form is certainly a miracle for me. I am truly blessed and I hope a legacy has begun here for me, and that when I am gone, some will continue to read me. I also pray my children find their father through his writings left behind. Deep hugs to you sweet friend and all the best of the Season to you and yours.


Your lovely comments are my reward.
Thank you !
