Adeline Foster Poems

~ If There Be No God

If there be no God,
Then all the stars, that in their place

The Bloom Of Youth

Your day will come little girl, little girl,
Be patient today and tomorrow.

~ Who Am I

All of the words I want to say

^ We The Unencumbered

Tattered misfits, we are called,
We ask not hate nor love;

~ Brush Strokes

A poet needs a model,
As sure as artist's brush.

~ O Dearest Love

O Dearest Love
Wherever you are walking

~ Home Is

In all the lands I've traveled,
The places I have been,

~ A Writer's Dilemma

I lay me down and long to sleep,
Then words come tumbling instead of sheep.

Memory is a cheating thing-
It only strives to please,
And over bitter clouds creates
A shimmer to deceive.

.My Heart Is Native

An Indian maid with long plaited hair
Indian tunes crooning through the air

~ Cicatrix

The heart is like a honeycomb,
Each section having many rooms:

His Purposes Move On

His purposes move on apace -


While going for a quiet drive
Along a country road,

~ When Love Dies

Love died and yet

.Frost Flowers

Bits and pieces, drops of life
Falling petals, crystal moments

~ Time Heals

To live each day and not forget


~ Trees

There’s a tree outside your window

^Death Of Innocence

A little girl was playing in the garden 'round her home,
Mischief sparkled in her dark eyes and her curly hair was blond.

Everybody Has Had Somebody

^An Acutely Obtuse Pythagorean Lyric

was watering

Adeline Foster Biography

Born in Calandar, Ontario, in the far north of Canada, Adeline Foster was deeply influenced by the poetry of Robert Service who wrote many of his ballads for the Yukon. She spent her early childhood years in New Brunswick with her grandmother. She adopted her grandmother's name as the pen-name for her poetry volumes. She reminisces fondly about the snowdrifts and Northern Lights, after returning to the North-country. Educated near Toronto, in Oshawa, Ontario, she went back to the north as a grammar teacher. Twice widowed, she moved south to Ottawa and then to Hagersville, in southern Ontario, and is now residing in Hagerstown, Maryland, USA. After graduating in 1997 with a degree in Computer Information Services, she is currently teaching poetry.)

The Best Poem Of Adeline Foster

~if There Be No God

~ If There Be No God

If there be no God,
Then all the stars, that in their place
Have aeons roamed abroad,
Would long ago have lost the trace
Of orbits-if there be no God.

If there be no God,
Then justice in the heart of man
Would be a fake-a senseless fraud;
Each for himself alone would stand-
No honor-if there be no God.

Adeline, Thanks so much for you kind comments. The next best thing to writing poetry is having someone else enjoy your poems. I had not come across your work before but I am happy to have found your poetry. The quality of your poems is striking and the skill with which they were written is obvious. I read about 15 of them this morning and enjoyed all of them. I will keep you on my list to continue reading. Thanks again, Dick Lackman

Dear Adeline, I was reading your bio and noticed that you lived in New Brunswick? I have some family living there as well. Another coincidence is that I spent my formative years in Rockville MD! I went to Rockville high school & Montgomery College! I now live on Cape Cod. Your poetry is marvelous. I especially enjoyed your poem about cats. You are a writer!

Hello Adeline: I did read Indebted. I liked it very much. It's cheeky, funny elegantly terse, with a nice rhyme scheme and structure. I feel honored that you left me a comment, and invited me to read one of yours. I think your poems must be like Lay's Potato Chips. A person is not satisfied with just one.

Hey: This is Mark Walters. I read your poem, If there be no God. Very nice, I like the rhyme and two stanzas is a good length. I use the reference to eagles in my poem A sign of life because at times in Scripture God has been compared to a soaring eagle. Thanks, Mark Walters
