    Emanuel is far greater poet than Eliot or Frost - for those who want proof, just take a look at some of the best's poems of man, backed up insightful commentary by Alex Sheremet. Needless to say, poems pretty much speak for themselves for all of their excellence!

    Emanuel is a very fine poet - the equal of Eliot and Frost. But his better works are not included here: 'For a Farmer', 'Sonnet To A Writer', 'Daniel is Six', and 'To Kill A Morning Spider'. I strongly recommend these poems to readers.

Best Poem of James Emanuel

«&Nbsp;I'M A Jazz Singer,&Nbsp;&Raquo; She Replied

He dug what she said:
bright jellies, smooth marmalade
spread on warm brown bread.

"Jazz" from drowsy lips
orchids lift to honeybees
floating on long sips.

"Jazz": quick fingerpops
pancake on a griddle-top
of memories.     Stop.

"Jazz": mysterious
as nutmeg, missing fingers,
gold,    Less serious.

"Jazz": cool bannister.
Don't need no stair.      Ways to climb
when the sax is there.

Mahalia Jackson

« I sing the LORD'S songs »
(palms once tough to stay alive,
alarm clock on five).

Cinnamon cheeks, Lord,
cornbread smile.     SONGS     feed your ribs
when you're hungry, chile.

Washboard certainties,
