Poems from the Edge of Spring by Elise Skidmore is a lovely book of poetry. She covers a variety of topics in a way that is refreshing and original. Some of my favorites included such poems as "Fairy Friend" which spins a whimsical tale of fantasy, "Monsters" which shares childhood memories of monsters and a sister's comfort, "Without Me" which reveals the impact one individual makes in the world, and the touching poem of loss in "10:05 p.m." The author captures snapshots of life in her own unique style. I related to the tense moments of driving through a storm in "Stormy Night" and appreciated the insightful picture of "A World Without Sound." I loved the imagery of wandering through the sky in "Look to the Sky" and the rhythm of "The Nightmare." She brings to life the simple act of peering "In the Thrift Shop Window" and gives us an intriguing glimpse into the world "Behind the Mirror." I really enjoyed the beautiful poetry in Poems from the Edge of Spring. I will pick it up and read it again...and again.
