WORDS FROM WITHIN is a collection of poetry -- simple verse and some prose -- written over a period of forty-eight years. It is separated into six different themes -- Words of Love, Joy, Despair, Wisdom, Faith, and Prose -- although some could be interchanged easily and most are strongly Christian-oriented in their subject matter -- to both challenge and inspire.
The most gracious comments one could receive about the early poems came from Rosa Zagnoni Marinoni, the Poet Laureate of Arkansas, who wrote, "Your poetry has gentleness and strength -- it is most sincere and heart-felt," and a young lady who said, "You seem to be able to say what men since Adam have been trying to say in a manner in which changing the poem would destroy it."
Different personal moods and thoughts are expressed as they evolved throughout the years, so a wide range of feelings is touched upon here. Hopefully one will touch you.
