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 »

    Valsa is POWERFUL AND ENORMOUS IN POETRY.
    She is fine and strong and currently publishes more on Hello Poetry.
    I call her the MOTHER OF POETRY.
    Her poems are immensely and enormously rich and she is a Professor too.

    I am positive that Bharati was getting you and me confused. Obviously, EXCEPT for the name and pronouns, she was getting it right!

    Valsa George is one of my most favorite poet on this site. Her poems are so beautiful, so enriching, so enlightening! ! Her poems have wonderful expression, and deep philosophy.She is a real inspiration to other new poets.Her reviews are always positive and constructive.Though she remains at the top of the popularity chart, she is very humble and friendly towards all. I feel so lucky to have read Valsa Georges poetry and getting her as a friend and guide in my poetic journey.

    Valsa George... [my best PH friend is leaving (for now): : (; SHORT]

    I hear Valsa George is quitting PoemHunter,
    at least for a little while.
    That's like a football team losing its punter,
    but SHE............goes out with style......

    ......for she notified ME, a true friend indeed,
    and for that I'm very thankful.
    For many on this site she's filled a need.
    We'll survive, but not on a tank-full.

    I hope whatever makes her go away....
    will be rectified for her sake,
    and for the sakes of all her fans.
    Then we can celebrate....with CAKE....
    and ice cream!

Best Poem of Valsa George

Poet

Wielding a tool, mighty and spiky
Mightier than either the sword or rod
He reigns, monarch in Fancy's domain
Sketching life in fanciful colour and mode

Which with pain and strife fraught
Or bright with gaiety and grace
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, ...
