    I just wanted to say that I LOVE your poetry. You (and your poems) are certainly an inspiration to me, as everytime I log on to this site I hope to unearth another mind-numbingly spectacular poem written by you. When I read your words, I realize that you have a gift that no one else has, a key I should say. The key that you possess lets you wander the paths of emotions, as your control of emotions is like the winds at the beach. Your wind is able to sway the grass on those sand dunes eloquently or violenty, romantically or comedically. The poems that you write come from a place that most people are only able to feel. As a 17 year old about to embark on the quirky journey that is life, I just want to say thank you for letting me share in the delight that are your poems.

    Most Regards,

    After reading much of her poetry, it is certainly truthful, and I say this with confidence, that Ernestine Northover's work is some of the best I have come across, spanning from different themes of womanhood to wistful everyday life to splendid love. With a rhyming scheme in her poems, emotional themes and her words patterned into forming luminous and resplendent images whilst being read, whether it be in one's mind and through one's mouth, I also find myself saying with confidence, no matter how much my personal opinion usually differs from everyone else's, that one would find that after reading her work, some might not only linger, but may embed itself into one's mind.

    Personally, Ernestine, it is an honour and a pleasure to be able to talk to you and to get to know you.

    - K.

    It's great to see you back as No.1! ! There are some that grumble you should
    not be No.1. They loudly proclaim how great they are and in their poems, they
    think using complicated words with thought, makes them a genius. Well in my humble opinion, that is merely, mental masterbation. If these loud mouths are so great, where are their poems in the top 500?

    They will never understand that communication with a persons feeling and heart is the cornerstone of poetry. You do that as with other great poets like,
    Maya Angelu, Pablo Neruda and Langstion Huges, all people who are constantly
    in the top five of the top five hundred poets.

    There are a lot of great poets on poemhunter,
    who are happy for you and congratulate you.

    I noticed among nearly 12 thousand poets, this
    week YOU WERE CHOOSEN AS No.1!
    You've beaten a lot well know poets!
    Ernestine, my sincere congradulations!

    Anyone who has not read your poetry yet is in for a real treat. Your style is witty, pretty, and I think unique. You write poems because you love writing poems, and that comes out in them. Well done. Sincerely, David.

  • Mary Nagy (8/31/2005 3:17:00 PM)

    I have been reading your poems and am enjoying them so...much! I think you have such a wonderful way of writing and I look forward to reading more from you. I am so glad I found your poems, they are a real treasure. Sincerely, Mary

Best Poem of Ernestine Northover

Hold You In My Smile

Sweet moment, stay with me,
and pray do not flee so soon,
Let me enjoy the bliss of that
first kiss beneath the moon.
I wish to cradle this feeling,
that has only just been found,
A feeling that has unexpectedly
turned my world around.
Do not depart, Oh please remain
within my heart awhile,
So that I can savour you once more,
and hold you in my smile.

High Flyer

They were 'Proctors' and 'Jackaroos' in those days.
Single wing aeroplanes,
two and four seaters,
either open engines, or open under your seat.

Exciting for a seventeen year old.

I went up with the commercial pilots,
logging up their flying hours.
