Poems of Faith and Inspiration
In "I Sing from the Shadows," poet Pauline Carter brings together a lifetime of poetry filled with faith and inspiration, a deep and abiding respect for nature, and love of family.
In the ninety poems collected here, the author's love and devotion to God, together with her love and appreciation of nature, is a recurring theme, as evidenced in this excerpt:
I see God in the springtime,
In the flowers of every hue;
I see God in the summer,
In every drop of dew.
I see God in the autumn,
In each leaf of gold and brown;
I see God in the winter,
In each snowflake on the ground.
From a woman's longing for the past in "Childhood Make-believe" and a mother's anguish over a son at war in "The Gift of a Child" to the whimsical musings in "Our Rummage Sale" and the deep introspection of mortality in "Invincible Soul," this collection conveys the life, heart-felt emotions, playfulness, and insights of a talented poet.
