“Mr. Schenck’s collection entitled Thee & Me In a Mellow Thine explores meanings of Bible stories and characters, family interactions, and social constructs never forgetting the connection with the divine, never overlooking the Thee and Thine in his everyday observations. Schenck begins with two Aunt Vashti poems, both rich in memories, longings for futures in which one can enjoy memories, references to history and family, including the humorous “vicious toddler” who knows much but understands little. He closes with a Mushy Confession of love, fitting bookends to a collection rich with irony, humor, and keen perception. . . . Mr. Schenck’s poems are sure to have lines worthy of every reader. . . .mellow and insightful.”
