    Val, I just read your name in a poem by Joe Anderson. He likes your poems as much as I do. I am still writing some but need to get back into my stride. I hope you are well. Every day is still precious.

    Valerie is definitely among the most talented poets on Poemhunter.
    She is not afraid to give enough space to her feelings.
    Good feelings, negative feelings, she ventilates and lets them move
    She uses a wonderful language and striking images to translate the emotion into fantastic verses
    Reading her poems is like taking a rest in an oasis
    I hope to read much much more on PH from Val

  • Richard Beevor (5/4/2014 3:58:00 PM)

    quite brilliant, lovely work, thanks for sharing and not dispairing

  • Sandra Feldman (4/18/2014 1:42:00 AM)

    A poet of great sensitivity, beauty and charm., like the Masters once were.
    With words she paints such charm and gives the reader this wonderful sense of well-being
    If poems were like paintings, hers would hang in the Louvre.

    Shall I, No More, Contentment Praise
    Beautifully couched Val.
    Southport? I was a fire chief at Southport circa 1974

Best Poem of Valerie Dohren

Ode To A Lost Love

'Oh sweet breath of eternal life
Dance ever `pon her silent breast
Released from pain and worldly strife
The one I love is laid to rest'

Her flaxen hair, like golden corn,
Fell soft about her lifeless face
And round her shoulders to adorn
As limp she lay in death`s embrace

Still young, the bloom of youth today,
Her life had barely yet begun
But all too soon to fade away
No more to dance beneath the sun

No more to laugh in sweet delight
Nor skip through pastures wild and free
Nor hear the nightingales sing bright
In pure and perfect ...

Read the full of Ode To A Lost Love


Her breast was warm and tender was her face
Secure was I within her long embrace
Protected from the pain of human care
It seemed that I was ever part of her

But then I stirred awakened by the dawn
The time had come at last and I was born
The sun shone brighter than I`d seen before
I looked around and she was there no more
