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 ... more »

    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

    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.

    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

Best Poem of Adeline Foster

Bloom Of Youth

The Bloom Of Youth

Your day will come little girl, little girl,
Be patient today and tomorrow.
Sip gently the nectar of awakening love,
Deep drafts are harbingers of sorrow.*
Guard wisely the blush of your opening bud-
One blossom is all you're allotted.
The body betrays and the heart is deceived
In throes of first passion besotted.
For many a dewdrop of love comes your way
To pluck at impatient heart strings,
But dew drops evaporate in the sun's ray,
Sip gently awaiting well-springs.
That first gentle thrill as your petals unfurl,
