    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

#93 Poetry In Motion These Hands

These hands hold small bowls
Of muted laughter
Rising with soft edges
Against the sky

A Bed Time Story

Once upon a time
Once upon a dream
Once upon a heart break
Once uppon a tear
The world closed down.
Where were all the fairy god-mothers?
