About the Book
Turkington’s poetry moves from profound to epic to the amusingly contrived. His rhythms and alliteration truly transport the reading.
- Richard Wilbur
Turkington's poetry often crystallizes in verbal music.
-Paul Paige, Professor Emeritus of Music, Grand Canyon University
Mirrored strings together vibrant
A carved bridge with his own label
And sound post placed, uniquely able
A noble scroll’s heroic sculpture
Preserved for centuries of music culture
Although luthier is now at rest and gone
His violins are played, his music still sings on
