Reader's Diary #2056 - Moira Cameron: Musings of a Northern Verbiculturalist

If you are a fan of old school, form poetry, Moira Cameron's Musings of a Northern Verbiculturalist might be a good fit for you, while also getting a glimpse into a Northern life.

Personally, I found it a bit uneven. Some I quite enjoyed, some I didn't. I certainly appreciated the honesty and the imagery in her words, but often I found the syntax to be hammered into a form (for the sake of a rhyme, most often) that while grammatically acceptable, felt very unnatural. Lots of classic poetry did that as well, so again, it may be your thing.
