This book of poetry that is divided into sections that is very much like our walk through life and it reminds us that we all share many of the same fears, hopes and dreams. Something about this book is also powerfully healing. Perhaps it is the expression or evocation of emotions that most of us were taught to ignore and deny. Perhaps it is the absence of vengance. It is a beaautiful book in words and illustrations. Four Sections: Youth,Love,Reality and Wisdom.

It makes a beautiful gift for someone.  The men who have read the book, tell me it should have been named Pulse Points of Life because it definitely not just for women.

Excerpt

A Tired Vagabond

When my feet grow too weary of walking
through endless time and change,

When the wonder of life is gone
and everything seems foreign or strange,
When I have played the sense-song through and wearied of its themes,
When I have lived life more vividly
than all my maddest dreams,
Then I will gather all I love
around my banquet board.

And when the songs have all been sung
and when the wine has been poured,
When I have crashed my goblet on the floor and watched the crimson seep,
Then through destiny's door will I slowly leave with reluctant silent feet.

PULSE POINTS OF A WOMAN’S WORLD: GLOBAL VERSES BEYOND GENDER AND RACE AND TIME
PULSE POINTS OF A WOMAN’S WORLD: GLOBAL VERSES BEYOND GENDER AND RACE AND TIME
By Dr. Aman Kay*

The poetry of Sylvia Ramsey sometimes feels like the reflection of a dawn’s breeze in a field filled with butterflies and little birds. The lines and stanzas carry the reader through images and infinite memories that sooth the soul: “The warm glow of a pot-bellied stove ice cream made/of fresh fallen snow,/soft pillows of down/In beds piled high with comforts and quilts,/tucked safe in a world of soft eider-down” (p. 21).

At times Ramsey’s poetry shares lines presenting their commendable poetic values that echo a philosophical notion that will lead the reader to a world of wonders: “Memory returns to a time when a wish was made . . .” (p. 31); or “With long melancholy silences . . ./the child-world has come of age” (p. 61); or “Words can be like daggers/that slash and cut the soul,/Leaving jagged cuts with unhealthy/scars that take their toll” (p. 67); or “Feeling lonely is an empty cold sky/before the sun raises its sleepy head” (p. 76).

There is an invisible and yet powerful sincere presence that brings comfort and pleasure to the reader. This presence becomes particularly magical throughout the love poems that convey the ancient component of an honest heart: “I yearn for shades of darkness/to hurry south to bring the one/Whose touch fills me with such warmth/it melts the shards of ice thereon . . .” (p. 41).

Ramsey’s poetry ventures beyond time and space, gender and race, and above all the human-built boundaries. These poems open the doors and windows into far and hidden corners of every day’s fear and hope while maintaining the same invisible sincerity and creative principle: “As time creeps, and crawls/at a turtle’s wearisome space/Fearing my heart will be splintered/by a demon’s lightning flash . . .” (p. 81); “Let me love/though love/may go unrequited,/An empty heart is much heavier/than a stone . . .” (p.93).
If you read and reread Ramsey’s poetry, you, too, will be whispering “Love, faith,/and laughter . . ./Armed/with these three gifts,/I need not fear/tomorrow, nor, tomorrow . . .” (p. 93).
