International Poet Melanie Simms

Little God

My son doesn't know
His own strength;
Shadows flicker across the room,
Ducks, rabbits
And wolves.

He has made them
With his hands
And watches them dance
Across the moonlit wall.

He laughs as he creates
Creature after creature
My little god.

Professional Reviews

Michael Glaser
This collection of poems speak to the many emanations of the Muse as Melanie Simms' has experienced them. As a whole, they capture the various lights and shadows that compromise the complex and always mysterious timbres of her life--- the dissonant sorrows and the rainbow dream. Waking the Muse is an ode to the constant hope of the morning sun.

Robert Sward
Melanie Simms' moving poems, the best, are well observed, telling, timely and truly speak from the heart.

Gary Young
Deeply rooted in the Romantic tradition, her poetry is by turns humorous, mocking, serious and heart wrenching.
