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 to 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.

    A Valentine's Eve

    in Romantic Valentine's Day Poems

    Do you remember that Valentine's Eve
    Soft moonlight shining through silhouette trees
    Silvery stars glistening just for us
    Do you remember being so in love.

    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.

    Analysis of Form and Technique

    There was a shepherd who fell fast asleep
    So there was no one to see to his sheep.
    The sheep were delighted, freedom at last
    Followed the leader and ran away fast.

    I love this poem. I send blessings to you, Beryl. The words mean so much for me, because I know that we are the sheep and also the shepherd. We need but recall our Spiritual Father, "God,"...

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.

There are times one comes across poetry that captivates the heart,
creeps inside never to depart...


An exquisite ace of diamonds classic
that only a magician could magic
'Tis hoped the recipient of this fine art
Felt the charm caressing her trembling heart.

Soft voiced emotive tender affection
expressed in most heartwarming perfection
Truly this has to be work of a Bard
A moving rendition to a love's heart.
