Book Tour and Giveaway: The Child of Happiness by S.V. Cobets

The Child of Happiness
(Edited Version)
by
S.V. Cobets

Genre:
Poetry
This collection of poetry is a summary of my selected poems that I wrote for many years. I hope that you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. In this collection of poetry are collected all of my feelings that I want to share with you through verse.

"The Child of Happiness, by S.V. Cobets, is a beautiful poetry collection that reaches deep into the soul. Though the author’s native language is Croatian and not English, the emotional depth of each poem comes across clearly and will be relatable across cultures. Sensual and light with themes of nature & love, yet also tinged with feelings of sadness and darker themes of heartache, pain, loss, & the casualties of war - there were many poems that spoke to my heart.-Amazon Reviewer

WITHOUT A TITLE

My shoes have worn out from long travels,
I’ve walked for years, months, and days.
Mainly here and there I’ve found what I’m interested in,
Some river or sea, clean and blue,
Green mountains, grey and white.
Sometimes the people always suffer,
Some who talk for talk’s sake,
Wise men, ninnies, smart ones, and those in love
—They have all passed me.
I don’t know where to follow my feet
For now, they are barefoot.
Sometimes I sit and look into the distance;
I’m scared of all those tracks,
But when I get up and set off,
Each fence falls down.
Maybe I bring silence in me;
Words leave me slowly,
But I’m in love with the wild
Stjepan Varesevac-Cobets was born on 12 September 1965 in Split, Croatia. He lives and works in Kastel Sucurac, where he finished his elementary and secondary schooling.

At a very young age, he started reading and loved it because, through books, he traveled to places he could never visit in person. As a child, he loved fairy tales and adventure but later discovered other genres. When he found a Jules Verne book in the library, he became fascinated by science fiction. He has been writing poetry for fifteen years and has started writing science fiction. Lately, he has also written children's fairy tales and fables.

He has published, in Croatia, "An Opened Heart" in 2002, "The Sleepy Way" in 2005, and "Love" in 2006. On Amazon he has published the poetry collections "The Child of Happiness" in 2015, science fiction novel "Godeena" in 2015, the science fiction short story "Butterfly" in 2016, the poetry collection "When the moon takes over the dream: Love Poetry" in 2016, and in 2017 the poetry collection "The Flaming Horses: Collection of poetry". He also translated his new Sci-Fi novel "The Dream of the Forest".
