About Beryl Edmonds

My interest and love of poetry began at school, when I was fourteen years of age. The class were given the project of writing an anthology of verse, using our own poetry and designing the cover for our book.
I really enjoyed the project and still have the book I made.
Poetry has remained a lifelong hobby, I enjoy reading and writing poems to this very day.

As poets we may not have a stake
in the Hall of Fame
Or not even Poet Laureate
put beside our name
But there's one thing tho' all poets know
that is for certain
Poetry's in the blood since life begun
till close of curtain.

    Romance, A Galaxy Apart.

    in Long Distance Poems

    There's a tale of two lovers written in the stars
    Punished for giving each other their hearts
    A poor cowherd boy named Altair, fell madly for
    Vega, the humble weaving girl he adored.

    Inspiration comes from all kinds of things
    Nature in bloom of her blossoming Spring

    Excited yet scared of taking the chance

    Love Found On The Shelf.

    in Humorous Poems

    Shampoo got in a lather sat on the shelf
    He'd spotted a love potion, all by herself
    She was sensually smooth, silky and sleek
    He just simply couldn't resist taking a peek.

    Memories Of Christmases Past

    in Christmas Poems

    I wish for my lost loved ones to spread wings
    So they'd fly back and share all Christmas things,
    Just as they did back in their days on earth
    And the holy birth was a source of great mirth.

"God's Creation" is a beautiful poem, Brother John. We are indeed truly blessed, so why do humans make the world such a mess?

A beautiful romantic poem, William...

Those in love don't see love, they feel it.
Hidden in their hearts are the secrets.
Only they know what lights their fire,
The mystic magic of shared desire.

Brother John,
That's so, so touching and beautiful.
I believe there's a Saint Valentine's Day in heaven and that flowers grow there.
Do not worry, do not despair for roses are abundant in paradise I swear.
God hears and answers all prayers and He'll present red roses to loved ones on this special day of the year, because He cares.

Pina Cirillo,
Thank you very much for the review, it's most appreciated. Sheep and shepherd...yes, I agree that's how we should strive to be. Everyone has a special gift God blesses us with, though the glory of every talent is His.
"Great is the art that comes flowing from the heart
You don't need expertise, the Lord sows the seeds."

Never having had a grandfather in my life (they both left the world too soon), this poem really touches my heart. Every word expresses the love between you and your Grampie. A wonderful tribute poem and that last line is awesome.
