Another Lovely 5-Star Review for A Penny for Your Thoughts

Poems of Love and Loss…
Feelings Into Words

Thank you Jannifer Powelson for the lovely review of A Penny for Your Thoughts

“A Penny for Your Thoughts” is Worth Much More than a Penny, Even a Very Pretty Penny!

 My daughters and I have read  all of Sherrill S. Cannon’s previously published children’s titles. Her knack for using rhyming verse to reinforce children’s values and good manners is excellent. In her new book of poetry, “A Penny for Your Thoughts”, Cannon continues to entertain readers using her poetic story weaving skills.  Her poetry runs the full gamut of emotions, from friendship and love to grief and loss, and every feeling in between. Her style of poetry is easy to understand for even those who may not normally enjoy poetry, as Cannon puts her heart and soul into her poetry, allowing others to envision her sensitive words as they pertain to their own lives. As a nature lover, I found her poems with a nature theme to be especially engaging. No matter where you’re at in your life, you’ll find several poems in this divese collection of poems to relate to your life or simply enjoy on their own merit!

    A Penny For Your Thoughts is simply the most beautiful book of A poetry. Thoughts of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and her sensitive sonnets are shadows in some of Cannon’s poems. The lovely style of blending and weaving words to evoke feeling is well done. The poetry touches on topics of age, youth, nature, and love with deep emotion such as Frozen Wasteland and My Tree. The poetry exceeds her wonderful children books that hinted through the Dr. Seuss homage of rhyme delivering gentle lessons with deeply felt emotions of humanity. How wonderful this A Penny For Your Thoughts book of poetry arrives in time for the holidays the time of wonderment and renewal.
