I Found A Bone and Other Poems

I Found A Bone and Other Poems is a historically significant collection of poetry by Teo Kah Leng: an educator whose love for art and literature preceded his name. He served as teacher, principal, brother, and friend in Montfort school for 43 years.

Teo’s poetry bears distinct cadence and lyrical qualities of another age, of which readers of literature today can appreciate for its technical aptitude, its depth of emotions, and its beauty. The collection captures the vividness of life in pre-independence Singapore; reimagines folklores and tales; paints and personifies creatures big and small; and ruminates on a life nobly lived, nobly died.
