Marschall delves into the realm of human emotions, sentiments, and interactions, in flowing meter and rhyme - from the mystical rhymes of "Cobalt Blue" and the haunting story told in "An Old Man's Elegy", to the sobering thoughts of the pentameter of "Neighborly Ways", and then later, to the questions in his free verse, of was it the lizard's fault, that he did nothing when the big machines came to demolish his lands and his home.

A delightful collection of lighthearted Christmas verse addresses the ageless question of whether or not, Christians still accord the proper significance to the real meaning of Christmas.
Poetry that never slows down to take a breath, Marschall's riveting, and engaging verses examine the premise that there is a place for man in the grand scheme of the universe and that God's Grace, oft' times finds expression, in that elusive thing that philosophers have dubbed "the equation of life" WHY do I exist? Does my life matter? WHY am I even here? "Cries in the Wilderness" offers a gripping, compelling, and challenging view of man at his best and his worst, and couches our destiny in questions, we have to answer ourselves from the wisdom imparted to us in Marschall's verses.
