    I read your book 'People Talk' and finding it again I make note here of what was said of you at that time and I want to say you have only gotten better.

    'Mrs. Alves is a versatile and spontaneous writer, which gives her work universal appeal'

    Dorothy's poetry is important, I believe, because it deals with real people and describes real situations with much warmth and sincerity.

    'Dorothy's poems are sensitive insights into the soul.'

    I salute you for still sharing your gift.

    Ms. Holmes: You have a startling, and extremely versatile voice, with a range that goes from sensuous to sad and back in about 6.5 seconds. Thank you for sharing.



Empty house
Empty bed
Empty heart
Empty head
Myself rattling
About within
My skin
Find the key, somebody, quick!
So happiness
Can move in
With me
