One glance at the poetry in this little book,
by Elga Haymon White, will give you the desire to read all the beautiful, heartfelt poems.
You will find a quote in the book from the French:
“Poeta nascitur, non fit.”
The translation of this quote in English:
“A poet is born, not made.”
A description of the word, ‘Rhapsody,’ is:
“A highly, emotional utterance; an effusively rapturous or extravagant literary discourse; a highly emotional literary work; ecstasy.
The Webster Collegiate Dictionary – 1979
The poems are placed in sections especially selected for their ‘style’ or ‘meaning.’
Poems are written in plain, everyday language where anyone — young or old — can grasp the magical words and understand the mind of the author.
Sections such as NATURE will capture our Wonderful World in the Great Outdoors. This section covers poems which will take you from ‘A New Day,‘ — inspired by a painting by ‘The Painter of Light,’ the late Thomas Kinkaid — to ‘Under Bolivian Skies… Night Wanderings,’ a poem written by the Author for her niece, Cindy Glaser Collins, a missionary to Bolivia, South America. ‘Angry Seas’ will ‘toss you about’ in the night-time until you awake to ‘A Morning Stroll.’
