The author’s expressive words are grouped into eight sections depicting examples of Gods Beauty and bounty; God’s promises; God’s gifts; God’s wisdom, guidance, lessons learned; In gratitude; Questions, searching, answers; Love; and Inspiration. Milton included corresponding Bible verses on the title page of each section. Dates on each poem help chronicle his ongoing life experiences and increasing comprehension, which work hand in hand as someone grows in faith and spiritual exploration.

Through a profound and inspiring book of poetry and prose, the author shares the depths of God’s love by revealing the intricacies of the facets of God’s nature. With personal stories, revelation of God’s heart, and glimpses of His beauty through nature, the author magnifies the wonder and majesty of a life lived with God by sharing his continuing increase in comprehension through the pages of The Heart of Milton, Poetic Prayer, Love, Inspiration – Book Two. The author’s work is wonderfully and effectively organized, with the author’s beautiful poetry and writings ordered according to theme and subject matter. This organization helps the collection of poetic works to have a natural and logical flow.

Mr. Batson has been writing poetry and putting his thoughts on paper since he was a young child on his beloved islands of Eastport, Maine, and Campobello, Canada. This compilation traces the changes from childhood through present day and depicts his very heart, revealing innermost feelings and observations about life’s lessons, adventures, joy, ardent hopes, trials and tribulations. His most ardent hope is that as he travels down life’s numerous pathways the positive lessons learned will provide some illumination in a darkening world.
Born in St. Stephens, New Brunswick, Mr. Batson was raised between Eastport, Maine, a small island community, where he enjoyed a Huckleberry Finn type lifestyle, roaming on frequent adventures with his best friend Paul Thompson, and Campobello Island, where his father was a friend of Theodore Roosevelt. Milton enjoys occasionally returning to Eastport for the Fourth of July celebration, which he says feels like going back to early 1900's America.
