"Prepare to find rest for your racing pulse and pleasure for your crowded mind."

From the Inside Flap

FRONT FLAP

With more poems and prayers than there are days in a year, this book will provide inspiration, encouragement, and comfort for every season and event in life. Whether you're celebrating Christmas, a wedding, or a graduation, you will find a prayer suited to your exact occasion. When you need a little encouragement during moments of disappointment or loss, when you want to say "thank you," "I'm grateful," or "I love you," or when you need a reminder of God's grace, you will find what you need in this inspiring collection.

Written with wit, sensitivity, passion, and wisdom, The Poems and Prayers of Helen Steiner Rice is a treasure that belongs in every household. It's a collection to dip into again and again to benefit from Helen's unfaltering provision of faith, hope, and love.

BACK FLAP

From the 1920s and beyond her death in 1981, Helen Steiner Rice has been an unofficial poet laureate of hope and optimism. Her books have sold more than seven million copies. There's probably not one American family today that hasn't been touched by some form of Helen's work. Even today her writings continue to inspire a new generation online, in gift books, and through note cards.

Virginia J. Ruehlmann of Cincinnati, Ohio, continues the legacy of her friend through the Helen Steiner Rice Foundation. Virginia has compiled more than fifty volumes of Helen's inspirational verse and poetry, including Awake My Soul and Sing: Poems Inspired by Favorite Hymns.

HI FOLKS! These writings are so inspired, they will have you laughing , crying, saying "Yep, Ive been there" and so deeply informative. I truly would have liked to have met this remarkable, yet simple child of Faith. I know one thing for sure, the people I have shared her works with, have wept with joy because they could relate to what she was writing about. Now that is what I call a writer! I recommend this book for people with depression and even if you don't have depression. She touches every aspect of life giving credit where credit is due. It truly is a gift that keeps on giving.

Became acquainted with Helen's poems and prayers in greeting cards many years ago. Found this book and have purchased one for myself and two others for friends. Very uplifting and even funny at times. Both friends loved the book. Lighter reading that anyone can identify with--not the heavy (difficult to understand) type of poems. Wonderful!!!

I have had a passion for all kinds of poetry most of my life, but since my interest is in more of the ancient masters I was unaware of this woman's poetry until very recently. This volume (The Poems and Prayers of Helen Steiner Rice) includes many beautiful poems, along with numerous (Too many for my taste)poems that have a religious and mystical theme.

Even though I did not care for the religious poems I thought many of Rice's other poetry was absolutely fantastic. It is poetry that anyone can appreciate and understand. The so-called "modern free verse" poetry style that often includes meaningless words put together randomly with no real purpose and meaning and often reads like they were written to a resident of an insane asylum never appealed to me. This is why I very seldom read present day poetry.

Some of the many poems I loved in this collection include: "The comfort and sweetness of peace." "Dark Shadows fall in the lives of us all." "A loving wish for a happy day." "A word of understanding." "Life." "Giving is the key to living." and "Give lavishly! Live abundantly!" One of the many things I like about this talented poet is she writes fairly short poems, which are my favorite poetry (Haiku for example) forms. Here is one from this collection I liked.
"GREATNESS"

"A man may be wealthy,
Good fortune may be his fate.
But only man's motives
Can make him truly great."

In conclusion, if you enjoy reading beautiful and meaningful poetry that touches your soul, you may want to check out this book of poetry by Helen Steiner Rice.
