language much like an artist wields a brush. As former Poet Laureate of

lighthouse provides light for lost ships. Waking the Muse is the first in

What People are Saying About This

Bam Dev Sharma
"Ms. Simms' poems speak of diverse themes that reach the cosmic heart,
unveiling a symphony of image."--- (Bam Dev Sharma, Poet and Department Chief, Campus of International
Languages, Tribhaven University, Nepal)
Robert Sward
"Melanie Simms moving poems, the best, are well deserved, telling, timely
and truly speak from the heart." --(Robert Sward, University of California, Santa Cruz, Ca.)
Gary Young
"Deeply rooted in the romantic tradition, her poetry is by turns humorous,
mocking, serious and heart-wrenching." --(Gary Young, Greenhouse Press Review)
Michael S. Glaser
"This collection of poems speak to the many emanations of the muse as
Melanie Simms has experienced them. As a whole they capture the various
lights and shadows that compromise the complex and always mysterious
timbres of her life -- the dissonant sorrows and the rainbow dream. Waking
the Muse is an ode to the constant hope of the morning sun."--(Michael S. Glaser,Poet Laureate of Maryland, St. Mary's College)

Whimsical musical poetry-- very romantic and emotionally heart-felt.... she gets to the core of the heart with her simplistic but innovative nature... love it!
