Exuberant Sons as portrayed in Rudiments of Life, Attack of the Diapered Viking and Word Pictures offer the reader a touching view into the too short time Moms have with little ones. I Am A Mother Of Sons might well be the verse for any mother of sons, “… and a penchant for ice cream and frogs” Or, “frail babies with frantic cries” And, “humble men … whose love will engulf us forever” Cries out to those who may also have had one of those frail little ones, or a boy who loved both frogs and ice cream, and are now grown into men to be admired. Perspective and About Sundays cause the reader to stop and consider more than just the moment. Eager Sons are portrayed in Welcome To My World as the writer describes little boys the world over, or in A Day In The Life which is sure to bring a smile to the lips of every mom. Earnest Sons offer seven delightful works, I especially enjoyed Earth Angel and thought of the little boy who lived in my house and is now grown to be a man I am still happy to know. Kindred Spirits with words telling of the eldest son, is another of the works I savored as I thought of my own eldest son. Edgy Sons presents a lesson in economics and a peek into the student driver. Evolving Sons rounds out the work with the last seven poems, Image is Everything evokes memory, Farewell, My Dear One is poignant and delicate, And So You Go might well be the chant for every mother of a son or sons.
Spanning some eighty-five pages the reader is treated to a variety of heartfelt odes written for and about sons by a loving Mom. A Mother of Sons: poems of love, wisdom & dreams is exactly that; verses filled with affection, common sense and reverie. Talented writer/poet Jayne Jaudon Ferrer presents elegant lyrical work in this sylvan composition. Moms and Grandmoms whether they are lovers of poetry or not are sure to enjoy A Mother of Sons: poems of love, wisdom & dreams. Lovers of poetry will be doubly delighted as they read each passage with care, stopping often to savor a word or a phrase and then moving on to the next enchanting portion.
As might be supposed; I am also a mother of sons, the verses offered by writer/poet Ferrer touched me especially.
Lovely book to tuck into a special gift for a New Mom, Your own Mother or Grandmother, or to a friend who is also a mother of sons.
Enjoyed the read. I don’t always keep the books I receive for review. A Mother of Sons: poems of love, wisdom & dreams is a book I will be keeping and reading again.
Happy to recommend.
