how aught you speak
Has the power to stir
the depths of my poor heart."
In my search for poetry books here at amazon I came across this lovely little collection of love poems and general poems. It is Wlla Wheeler Wilcox's most famous work. She seems to have been quite a controversial and loved poetess who spoke her mind no matter what others thought. The poems are all about grand passion and are not erotic but simply romantic. Sometimes she talks about war raging in her soul and at other times she discusses a longing for love. She also talks about unrequited love, despair and rapture. The only thing I seem to disagree with her about is her religious beliefs. In one poem in particular she discusses the idea of how each person is divine or at least she encourages us to worship the divinity in ourselves. It seemed a little New Age for her time. But anyway whatever your beliefs you can still enjoy the romantic poems. These poems are also very easy to understand even though they are quite old-fashioned.
~The Rebecca Review
Furthermore they are well constructed as well as conveying deep feelings and meanings. If you are one of the last romantics still around with an appreciation of real quality, this is for you.
There were some typos in the Kindle edition, but I have not checked them against an original publication of her poems. I know that in some of the original editions, the print was not always clear.
I recommend that lovers of poetry browse through her work and decide for yourselves... I believe no one would be disappointed with the time spent.
