I just put this on the Author page as well.

If you like poetry and you like art, my friend, author and painter, Batya Dagan has her book of poetry out now, illustrated with some of her artwork, and I just love it...

"A Shipload of Baggage and a Brush and a Pen"

available from her website:

www.batyadagan.com

I truly enjoyed reading this book. Batya is an American-Israeli Jewish woman--currently living in CA--who shares her views on the Holocaust, Love, Pregnancy, Lost Love and Heartbreak in this short but powerful collection. On her site, you can also see her artwork in beautiful living color...the book is in black and white, no doubt, for cost reasons. I hope that you enjoy experiencing this book as I have.

Title: Lovely Poems for Keeps

Author: Anita Eboka

Genre:  poetry

Summary:  I enjoyed it because of how eloquent the writer was. The poems were easy to read and quite emotional. There was something in there for everyone.
My daughter reads them to me in my quiet time. Nice work and recommended  highly. Available on Amazon.

Eureka Mill by Ron Rash is good. It's reminiscent of Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology (also good), in that he portrays life in a small mill town through a series of poems. Each person doesn't have his or her own poem like in Masters' anthology, but Rash does a great job of bringing the little, everyday things to the forefront and showing how they're meaningful in the lives of these people. Rash has a wonderful poetic voice.

Our library is participating in The Big Read this year.  The featured writer is the poet Henry Wadworth Longfellow. I read him years ago in college (English Major) and have revisted him recently.  I forgot how much I loved his poetry.

Also, Emily Dickinson's poetry. 

If you haven't read poetry before and aren't sure you'll like it, check out your local library(risk free, LOL).  They also have many versions of poets with reader's guides and that help in understanding the imagery that it's meant to convey.

I agree on the cami's. which is strange because everything you read tells you not to get v necks if you are small in the chesticles department. I've always found a small v to be quite flattering for small busties.
