Book Review: #NotePadPoetry by Amber Jerome-Norrgard

Each one of these poems struck a match and lit a thought in my mind. Especially the one titled ‘I wasn’t expecting’. That one spoke to me because my best friend lives a great distance away and the words that Amber Jerome-Norrgard uses sum my feelings up perfectly in just a few lines.

The Need To Read More

I was talking to a friend on Facebook last night about Shakespeare and Poetry by poets like Thomas Hardy and Alfred Lord Tennyson and she pointed me to a couple of poems that she really liked and I found that I liked them too.  I am proper dense with poetry, I don’t often get the hidden meanings and so forth but the poems she pointed me too were quite dark and morbid which I can be like at the best of times and I got them, kind of.  Maybe it’s were I’m older now or where I’ve read more fiction over the years that I don’t just feel dumb when I’m reading Poetry.  I still don’t think that I’ll ever be a big poem person but I am tempted to get some of Hardy’s and Tennyson’s work and read through them once in a while.
