    Val, I just read let me not your heart e'er break. Another beauty. It is so nice to think of our lives in such romantic terms. I think it helps us reinforce the real beauty of a loving relationship. We tend not to think of our relationships in this type of context from day to day but maybe we should.

    A poet who's poems are a thing of beauty.
    Take a look at Valerie's poem called, Titanic,
    A poem of beauty and detail. Her poems are
    going from strength to strength.

    Valerie is indeed a true poet, her way with words is astonishing. When I am reading her poetry I feel as though I am floating, it is filled with such wonder.

    Val, I just read laburnum tree, it's is very beautiful but very sad. I guess we have all had loves that did not blossom. But luckily we have the sense to go on and eeach day brings new promise and new experiences. The depth of emotion that this person felt would have been similar to the comments in the song about Vincent van goughthe world was never meant for one as beautiful as you. Why is it that poetry seems to be at its best describing the sad experiences in life? Good work.

    Val I just read Sunrise for the first time and really liked it. As usual your imagery is wonderful and the whole poem just pops. I just added one called I fail to understand what God was thinking. I am still a bit into heavy topics. I think I need to lighten up. The weather in Phialdelphia has been beautiful; warm and sunny so that should put me in the mood for some more positive poems.

    Valerie, Thanks for your comments about Strangers on the street It is certainly fun to look at such a little act and expand it to understand it better. By the way I really liked your new poems especial Dreams.

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

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
