Dear Carole, Even though I am reading the poems from the "Gift Forthcoming" in 2004, the clarity, insight, and just plain beauty of them will remain the same in 2008, and for all those people willing to stop and take the time to read them after us. I always thought something beautiful was moving around your mind in the nine years I spent with you in school. This book of poems confirms my belief. Thank you for letting me see the events of life from a new, fresh perspective. Thankyou for letting me see events through the eyes of a Poet. Den Fenstermacher

Your poetry is better than your peach cobbler--and that is saying quite a bit. Thanks, Carole...and keep 'em coming.

For you i'll leave of this web we weave
this single strand of this heart's heave
i like the drawing of your breath
where sighs an earnest breadth
so be my joy 'n

Carole, I really like your poems. But, I like humorous ones the best, especially Limericks. In fact, I met my wife in Limerick!! Good luck with your great talent.

Carole I knew you would do it!!!! I am proud of you and wish you all the luck in the world. How on earth did you get your daughter to sit down and do all those drawings???? You always had it in you, you just needed the DRIVE to make it happen. Only you hold yourself back....Celestine Prophecy.

dear carol I am writing to let you know how much I enjoyed reading your poems,I work with marie at the hospital and she brought the book into work for us to read ,I have ordered my one copy so I can spend more time reading them especially when I am in need of some solitude from the pressure of my work I am a nursing sister at the hospital and marie and I are great friends,she is such a help and source of comfort to me when things get tough. I loved to read poetry many tears ago, and have also composed some over the years just to get my feelings out and onto paper ,it does help. So I wish you every success with your book. Maria Swann
