What people are saying about Elise Skidmore --

I've read POEMS FROM THE EDGE OF SPRING, and can highly recommend it! The sort of book you can pick up for a moment's respite or inspiration--or just sit and read from piece to piece, always entertained/comforted/made to think. Lovely book! -- Diana Gabaldon

Poignant and lyrical, every sentence is a gem. Each poem brought back personal memories of family members and past experiences, each one re-lived through Ms. Skidmore's precise pen. I thorougly enjoyed this selection of poems, and look forward to reading more from Elise Skidmore! -- Karen White

... I really enjoyed the beautiful poetry in Poems from the Edge of Spring. I will pick it up and read it again...and again. -- Cheryl Secomb

Elise Skidmore gives us a glimpse of her inner most feelings and she does it well. Each of us can find a bit of our own soul inside her elegant words. Definitely worth the read! -- Susan Michalski

When Leaves Fall is the eagerly anticipated second book from acclaimed poet Elise Skidmore whose poetry reaches into the heart and brings us together in the seasons of life that we all share.

When Leaves Fall

When leaves fall,
still shouting life with their last rasping breath,

as brilliant reds, yellows and umber crunch beneath our feet,
I breathe deep,

inhaling sunshine, wood smoke and memories of laughing with the leaves and you.

About the Author

Elise Skidmore is a native New Yorker, who has been writing poetry since she was a child, but she didn't venture into the world of fiction writing till she hit 40 and life began anew. She feels blessed to have had the best parents, husband, and children a woman could ask for, and the strong bonds of family are often the subject of her writing. She's had several short stories published. Her poetry has received kudos from NYT bestselling authors Diana Gabaldon and Karen White, among others.
