    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.


Best Poem of Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

The Forever Of You

The forever of you
Is in between all I do...
In a passing field of flowers
In the morning sky,
You are to me, a soft
Enchanting lullaby.
You are ever in my thoughts;
Oh! the clamor that invades
The empty spaces
When we are apart.

Read the full of The Forever Of You


My mind, thrashing about, fighting the reality
That you are no longer here.
My world, so full of your absence,
Our house, wasting away in quiet despair.
A table setting for one now, if at all;
No loathsome smell of magic shave.
No sweet aroma of your cologne.
Our half empty bed, and no love sounds.
Yesterday I reached out for you, forgetting.
