i am not usually a fan of poetry and this was the first time i had ever bought a book of it, that being said i was pleasantly surprised how much i enjoyed this book,i read it through quite quickly at first but then i found some of them kind of lingered in my mind and i went back and read it again and this book is one i think i will keep near me to read again and again i loved the way it was set out and the way it took you along as you read each one, i would definitely recommend this book not just to those who like poetry but to others as well this has now become one of my favorite books and dare i say it it has encouraged me to look at more poetry now that is an achievement!

Review by: Robert Zimmermann on Nov. 14, 2012 :
The poems that make up the collection Night Poems from Ben Ditmars were enjoyable to read. I’m a fan of short poems, and they delivered well in that respect. Many were brief glimpses into the inner workings of the brain late at night. I’ve often found that my thoughts get deeper when I’m trying to sleep but can’t seem to. The subjects of the included poems are filled with questioning, longing, self inspection, and more. I feel that every poem is open to interpretation from a diverse readership, and poetry benefits from that. There is no one way to bring about a conclusion to any of them.

Ben Ditmars has created honest, insightful, and moving poems in enough of an abstract way to allow for many types of readers, while keeping them grounded enough to keep moving along on Night Poems‘ poetic journey.

Absolutely exquisite and breath taking! I have NEVER been as moved when reading poetry as I was while reading Ben Ditmars' "Night Poems". Each poem, set by hour and minute, floored me and took my breath away, as well as several bringing me to tears with the depth of meaning and feeling enveloping each word. Absolutely THE most moving and emotional work I have ever read in my life, "Night Poems" touches deep within the reader every emotion you can feel.
