Dr William Hay’s poetry reflects his deep appreciation of life, his own and that of all creatures. A deeply spiritual man, his most recent collection reflects his faith and dedication to the underprivileged. Bill tells it like it is without proselytizing. Dr Hay has honed his love for his God and his people by his dedicated work among the less than fortunate on the downtown eastside of Vancouver. This is who he is; read and witness his reality and his love.
