    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.

  • Richard Lackman (8/24/2013 11:46:00 AM)

    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!

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.

Read the full of ~if There Be No God

Sonnet Beyond Love

Forever in the caverns of my heart
Roam spirits of the loves I leave behind.
Ever will the echo of their touch
Leave patterns of their footsteps in my mind.
With nicks from many partings in the past
Ever will those cavern walls be lined.
Drops of mem'ry build stalagmites of the cast
Of actors in my theater of time.
Ever have my footsteps shunned the paths
