    No poet today even comes close to how you glorify poetry with simple words yet in oh so
    hallelujah order. You conquer our hearts with your honest expression of how tough it gets but manage to win every night with a beautiful composition. See you often at Poemhunter poetry park where you play your role as the ultimate master poet. You have many fans here who are drawn to your poetic style. Thank you and God Bless Sir Shalom Freedman!

    Today I came for the first time in contact with your writing, your poems.
    And I have to say your writing is beyond believe.For some of your poems
    are from such a high standard of writing they belong in my opinion in the top 500.In fact in the top 50

    Greetings Mario, L, R. Odekerken

    I have just discovered your work, and what a delightful discovery it has been - at 1: 00 o'clock in the morning!

    And what a wonderful name. Is it a pseudonym, or have you been blessed with such a name all your life?

  • Walterrean Salley (9/14/2014 9:13:00 PM)

    Beautiful. I enjoy your work. Always fresh. Always new. I look forward to reading...

    Dear Sir,

    Your poems are clearly beautiful and extraordinary. It is a shame and a disgrace (not yours but those of contemporary publishers, etc.) that all your poems are not published. You are a great poet and clearly the inspiration from God is with you like the glory hidden in a cloud, but not hidden. Please take care of your health and write every poem you have in you to write and if I were you I would publish everything here from every last scrap of paper because these poems should live. And this is one way you will know you have tried to make your whole opus known and I'm certain that God will bless the light He has given you to carry. Please keep trying to publish more in other ways, too. I believe we live in a time unfriendly to true poetry though I don't know the reason for it. Still we must try until the day we die and that is all we can do.

    God bless you your family whom you honor, and thank you so much for sharing your poems here on poemhunter. I am so grateful to be able to read them.

Best Poem of Shalom Freedman

The Beauty Of A Poem

The beauty of a poem
The beauty of music
The beauty of light
The beauty of life
The beauty which makes us want to live life more
The beauty which pains us inside
The beauty in longing.
The beauty we come upon by surprise
The beauty of the day and the beauty of the night
The beauty we all have inside us
The beauty we can see and feel and never explain
The beauty that lifts us up
The beauty that makes us want to live more
The beauty that makes us reach out to God
The beauty we want to thank God for
The beauty of lilacs
The beauty of autumn ...

A man alone
is a night alone

is alone
