Lovely Tribute for A Dime is a Sign by Linda Weaver Clarke

I am so thrilled and honored by this thoughtful tribute to my poetry by author Linda Weaver Clarke... Such a distinction and honor to be compared to Elizabeth Barrett Browning!!!

Romantic Poetry Tribute

Romantic Poetry During a Romantic Time of Year

One of my favorite poets is Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Her poetry is so romantic. With each sentence, I feel the message of love. She writes from the heart and that is why I love her poetry. Elizabeth’s beautiful Sonnets (Sonnets from the Portuguese) were dedicated to her husband, Robert Browning. One of my favorite poems that she wrote goes like this:

“Love me, sweet, with all thou art, Feeling, thinking, seeing. Love me in the lightest part, Love me in full being.” ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Wow! She writes from the heart. There is one other poet that I have fallen in love with. I love the poetry of Sherrill Cannon. Whenever I have to sit in the doctor’s office or wait in the car for someone, I pull her work out and soak in the words. Sherrill Cannon writes from the heart. Each of her poems differ in style and form. That’s what makes them fun to read. She has a unique and precious message for all. Her poems are delightful.

Sherrill, an Award-Winning Author, has great talent. One of my favorites from her book, A Dime is a Sign,is called “A Look.” It is written in Free Verse. In this poem, she writes: Never let that look go from your eyes… the one that stops my breath and grips my heartThat look that says “I love you” in a tone of powerful and rich intensity. This poem is simply lovely and has deep meaning. I felt as if I were spiritually fed. Let me give you another sample.

DREAM

Last night I dreamed a quiet dream of you:

We sat together, letting thoughts be shared;

An honest time, with many feelings bared;

With contact, as with touch my courage grew.

And as I left, into your arms I flew.

You held me close, and so I finally dared

To say, “I love you,” reveal how much I cared…

You smiled at me and said you loved me too.

And then my heart was filled with joyous peace

That comforted and left my soul refreshed;

And all my tense anxiety was eased,

For with your love and friendship I was blessed.

When I awoke and found that all was true,

I spent the morning thanking God for you!

A Note about A Dime is a Sign from a Former Classmate

Note from a Classmate

Lovely note from a former classmate…

“I read A Dime is a Sign from cover to cover, hadn’t intended to do it so quickly but found it almost impossible to put down, and finished it up in the middle of last night.  I thought it was wonderful…, I decided to mark off which poems I liked the best or felt that connected with me especially, so made a light mark in pencil so that I would be sure and tell you which ones.  And, lo and behold, it is a list that goes on forever, so it would be senseless to tell you.  But I wanted to tell you that I liked A Dime is a Sign tremendously…I am so sure that I know which one was used for the wedding, at least I thought so the minute I read it. “I Love You” is what I chose. Do you know which one it was?…One poem that I found particularly lovely was “Worship” and would love to see that used at the Cathedral during a service someday.  All in all, a most fabulous collection of your poetry.. I will read it over and over again.  You made me feel warm and fuzzy.  What a talent you have for writing and giving happiness.  Lucky you!”

Thank you, Betsy!
