Review by: Christopher Thompson on Sep. 02, 2011 :
Reading the poetry contained within Scott Smothers' "The Poet and Other Inspired Words" took me along with him through strolls down memory lane, walks through current pain, and a side trip into the inane.

His heartfelt poetry concerning those who have passed on eulogizes those gone in a beautiful way, giving the reader a glimpse into the lives of both the passed and the survivor that they left behind and the sentiment is deep for both man and animal alike showing that the poet not only loves, but loves deeply and purely.

I loved all of the poems as I read them, many for deeply personal reasons, but my favorite piece has got to be "The Burden" as it shows hope for anyone and everyone as they pass from the carefree indestructibility of youth into the almost inevitable faltering which comes with aging, his words echoing the same spirit that Dylan Thomas heralded as he urged readers to rage against the dying of the light.

Overall, I would recommend this book to readers of all ages. Mr. Smothers has a unique, and beautiful voice.
