Somebody Loves You by Helen Steiner RiceThis edition isnt the one I have but as mine doesnt have an ISBN Ill use it. My edition looks like some sort of special release. Its a padded hardback and in a gold and clear case. Its obviously a keepsake. I found it while going through my paternal Grandmothers belongings after her death and I tucked it away then. Its been in my bedroom closet for the past few years and something made me pull it out last night.
Im not a big poetry fan and Im especially not a fan of religion based poetry - or religion based anything for that matter. But the first poem grabbed me somehow so Im going to try to read them through.
Im finished with this and Im not sure I know what to say. I liked the poems, in fact, this is the kind of poetry I like. So Im not trying to be mean when I say that it reminds me of a childs poetry. I distinctly recall myself writing this sort of poem as a child. (Much like any kid does or would Im sure.)
I think the publishers tried to lump certain poems together, poems about love, or daily giving, etc. but IMO all the managed to do was make the poems redundant. Very redundant.
I did find one that I really liked and thats here:
This is My Prayer
Bless me, heavenly Father,
forgive my erring ways,
Grant me strength to serve Thee,
put purpose in my days...
Give me understanding
enough to make me kind
So I may judge all people
with my heart and not my mind...
And teach me to be patient
in everything I do,
Content to trust Your Wisdom
and to follow after You...
And help me when I falter
and hear me when I pray
And receive me in Thy Kingdom
to dwell with Thee some day.
And this reminds me although its not shown in this poem so much. (It might be the only one of its kind in this way.)
Lots of words were in all caps. And I dont mean God or He when referring to God. I mean like DAILY WISDOM and LOVE FOR YOU. It was soooo much that it just really took away from the poems for me. It stopped the flow of the words countless times in each and every poem. Thats sad because the poems are good. If you like the subject and you like this sort of poem - and can get past what Ive mentioned here - Id say give it a shot.
Im going to keep it to look at every know and then and maybe share with Julia at some point.
