    So there you are. I've been wandering through your poems trying to comment on each individual tale. The sad ones are the best eh? Keep writing Val. We need all of the rhythm and rhyme we can get,

    Hello Val, Just to let you know that I have really enjoyed your poetry. Those that I have read
    thus far are very captivating. Good poetry brings the reader to the dinner table and does
    not leave them hungry. Thanks for satisfying the appetite.

  • Richard Lackman (2/10/2013 12:28:00 PM)

    val, if i did not know this was yours, i would swear it must be a famous work of Shakespeare. It really is a beautiful poem with a romantic tone difficult to duplicate. Well done. Dick

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

I Am A Mystery

My mother is the mountain
Sweet ether is her breath
Born of words unspoken
Was I, in tenderness

I know not where I am
Nor what I'm meant to be
I cannot comprehend
I am a mystery
