"A World of Verse" by ASMSG Authors is a magnificent showcase of new and established talent in the world of rhymes and verses.
The collection covers a huge range of themes and types of poetry, even pieces by the same author may vary in style and content. Thoughtfully but without rhyme Alan Hardy is first up with his wonderful musings about the life of an old lady, while later on for example Peter Watson Jenkins delivers a great 'Sonnett' in more traditional style of verse; Andy Szpuk chooses amongst others war and a dirty motel for his powerful and concise poems; some authors write more cryptic or in staccato (B L. Ronan, Teresa Garcia), others sound like rhythmic short stories with full sentences and a story to tell (Laurie Miller Kazmierczak - check out her 3rd Thought, it is amazing, as is Muriel Cyr's heartbreaking 'For Marcel Giroux' and Ollie Lambert's inspired 'Oscar Wager II').
Other favourites of mine were Ian Bradley Marshall's tribute to his mother and 'Anyhows', a great reflection on conscience; James Amoateng's take on men, Karena Marie's sad love poem to a fallen soldier and Lucy Pireel's short and poignant 'woe',.
Although the steps of this amazing bunch of writers do not match the selection of talent is overwhelming and I could have picked quotes from almost any writer in this anthology. I have read some novels or short stories by some of these authors and am amazed at their versatility.
If you like poetry then this is a guaranteed and rich source of great materials so look no further.

I’m an author of four different genres and I’m now learning to write poetry. I love this collection of poetry so much and want to thank all of the authors for pulling together and publishing such a wonderful collection. I’ll be reading these poems over and over and hope one day I can come close to writing this well.

I strongly encourage all readers to read these poems aloud. For some reason, poetry is so much better read aloud.

I don’t want any of the authors of these beautifully written poems to feel slighted in any way for my not mentioning them here. Once I started reading this collection, I started a list of those I loved. Well, I soon gave that up for the list was getting too long. I decided to read on and wait for one to dazzle me beyond belief. The poem to dazzle me is ‘The Sun and Sea’ by Ollie Lambert. The next poem to dazzle me was ‘A Witches Downfall’ by Oscar Wager II. Regina Puckett’s poems are whimsical and charming and I commend her on the cover. Very nice.

Highly recommended!! I’ll be rereading this collection for years.

I absolutely loved reading everyone's work. The range of situations is so vast, and yet so many of the poems have a common thread. It's like reading a dance.

I have been feeling emotionally raw for quite some time now, and reading this collection has helped to soothe my heart (which takes quite a lot). I can't pick a favorite poem out of these, but the one about the sea, sun, and moon will be lingering in my mind for a very long time. This is a collection that I will very likely be reading often.
