My encounter with poetry was sudden. I didnt write a single poem till 2007. It was the fatal year when I happened to be bedridden for about four months. Obviously I was quite depressed. To while away my time, I started scribbling something and I felt what I wrote made sense and that was my first poem-The Great Escape. It was making myself convinced that my life was not meant to be languished in despair. It had such poignancy and depth of feeling..as it came directly from my heart!

Sensitive by nature, small things can excite me. Nature with her myriad faces has been my greatest inspiration. I am tied down to my family and with moderate comforts, I am happy in life. Retired from a... more »

    I feel my words are inadequate to praise the glory of your poems. There are some fine poets on this site and you are among my favourites. There is great charm and intelligence in your verses I find utterly fascinating

    Valsa George
    In Portuguese Valsa means Waltz?
    No, she is not a dancer,
    behind the screens she is a director.
    She directs the virgins of words
    and we see colorful rows of a rainbow,
    rearranging themselves at the stage of poetry.
    With joy my lips become a metallic bell
    music from my side,
    to applaud the charms when her poem starts dancing.
    I think,
    once upon a time she might have been a dancer herself?

    Many of her works are timeless! ‘Poet’, ‘Dust Unto Dust’, ‘A Sudden Downpour’, ‘Winged Words’, ‘To My Anonymous Lover’, ‘A Song Of Hope’, ‘Eagle On Wings’ are some of her outstanding pieces of poetry! She has a significant contribution to the world of poetry! Her contribution to this august Poem Hunter site is noteworthy! Hope, her invaluable contribution to the field of English literature would be recorded forever! May God increase her tribe! Pray God bless her and her family!

    Valsa George is a great poetess! I have read many of her poems and reviewed a few of them! Her poems are scholarly and the contents of the pieces of her poetry are loaded with wit and humor! Besides being a great poetess, she is a dynamic motivator of budding talents! Being a very meticulous reviewer, she interprets poems of fellow poets brilliantly through her beautiful comments!

    This is a humble reply to Jez Brul
    Today when your comment greeted me, I was amazed and taken aback! Please don't raise me to that level...! !
    . I don't deserve it...... However I assume that you admire and enjoy my poems. I am so happy about it! This knowledge is the greatest reward for a poet! Thank you so much! ! !

Best Poem of Valsa George

Poet

Wielding a tool, mighty and spiky
Mightier than either the sword or rod

In finer yarn than the gossamer thread
On the fabric of words in befitting verse

He steals away from the noisy crowd
In to the stillness of the cloistered cell
To dwell with Fancy's mystic charms
Weaving downy dreams at will

He recounts forgotten tales of yore
Of bloody battles won and lost,
Of lovers united, amour defiled, ...
