1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By D. Frazier VINE VOICE on March 28, 2007
Format: Paperback
Love, Is, The Beautiful Black Woman is Vernon J. Davis's first book of

poetry. He penned poems illustrating his appreciation for African

American women and paralleled them to the meaning of love.

In `Love Is', he wrote:

the Beautiful Black woman

Destined to become that, which has

never been

Across the stars, the universe

Her Love is free as the wind

Most of the pieces were written to uplift and inspire African American

women as well as give them insight on the male perspective of their

actions. Each poem had a unique rhythm that could easily be followed

if read aloud.

Any African American women in need of a spirit boost would definitely

benefit from reading this collection of poetry. The only negative

aspect of the book was that Davis personalized a few poems by giving

them individual names, like Diane, which gave me the feeling that he

had published his private diary. I think it is important for readers

of poetry to be able to interpret poems for themselves and not be

influenced by the authors perspective of an individual that readers

may not know.

Format: Paperback
LOVE IS, THE BEAUTIFUL BLACK WOMAN is a written celebration of the beauty that is contained within every black woman, and a tribute to their essence.

Vernon J. Davis takes the reader on a poetic journey of the senses, and every poem in this book, from the title poem "Love Is," to my personal favorite, "What Dreams May I Have," captures the passion, the fire, and especially the love that only a black woman can inspire.

Some of the poetry, such as "What Is a Woman Like," "Hot Chocolate," "Diane," and "Antala," is descriptive, and the poet's words are so vivid, you can close your eyes and almost visualize the personality and spirit of the woman each poem describes.

Others, such as "Love At First Sight," "Your Eyes," "Golden Girl," and "What Do You Feel," allow the reader to sense the deep love and appreciation that the poet wishes to convey to his Nubian queen.

Upon completion of this book, I felt as if the poet had embraced me verbally, and I felt a new sense of pride and joy in being a black woman. This is the first poetry collection by Vernon J. Davis, and I eagerly await future works by this gifted poet. This book would be a perfect gift for a black man to give or share with the woman he adores.
