The author sent me a heads-up about the fact that she is dyslexic (and I am passing that on to you). Her spell-checker program caught a lot of her goofs (I am sure), but some still slipped through. Having dealt with “inventive” spelling over the years, this was not a problem for me. And, as I went through the book, I found very few errors (mostly homonyms).

The poems cover a variety of topics – love, earth and animals, and Holidays among others and all are relatively short. The topics are all introduced by a few remarks which reveal some of Ms. Scott’s thoughts.

I found this collection of poems to be thought provoking in some instances, and a pleasant relaxing interlude in others. There is a little something for everyone in this collection. I have no hesitation recommending it to folks who enjoy traditional forms of poetry.
