    Valerie is definitely among the most talented poets on Poemhunter.
    She is not afraid to give enough space to her feelings.
    Good feelings, negative feelings, she ventilates and lets them move
    She uses a wonderful language and striking images to translate the emotion into fantastic verses
    Reading her poems is like taking a rest in an oasis
    I hope to read much much more on PH from Val

    quite brilliant, lovely work, thanks for sharing and not dispairing

  • Sandra Feldman (4/18/2014 1:42:00 AM)

    A poet of great sensitivity, beauty and charm., like the Masters once were.
    With words she paints such charm and gives the reader this wonderful sense of well-being
    If poems were like paintings, hers would hang in the Louvre.

    Shall I, No More, Contentment Praise
    Beautifully couched Val.
    Southport? I was a fire chief at Southport circa 1974

    So there you are. I've been wandering through your poems trying to comment on each individual tale. The sad ones are the best eh? Keep writing Val. We need all of the rhythm and rhyme we can get,

Best Poem of Valerie Dohren

After The Rain

After the rain the air is sweet
With glist`ning pools beneath my feet
Raindrops dripping down from the eaves
Teardrops slipping off shining leaves

And silken webs with crystals strung
Which span across the ivy hung
Around the trellised arbours green
A shimm`ring, luminescent scene

After the rain has kissed the earth
So Mother Nature brings new birth
Flowers to bloom with life anew
After the rain the sky is blue

After the rain comes a fresh dawn
After the rain new hope is born
After the rain has touched my soul
After the rain I shall be ...
