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
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.

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.
