Love...Is What You Do!

Rated 2.00/5 based on 1 review
This is a collection of love poems, both happy and sad. I wish that I could just write happy ones, and that the world was like that, but it is not. We both know it. So... I have gathered the best jewels for this treasure box. I hope you enjoy.
Please come back, and review my work. Like me and hit follow. :)

About A. Foster

Hello friends,

Thank you for taking a moment to check out my site. I hope one of my stories catches your attention. Love to hear from you. Please like me, follow me and above all, tell someone else. I would be so grateful.

I love to write, all kinds of stories. I am interested in real pirates from long ago, spaceships of tomorrow and all the time travel I can get. When I am not writing, I am thinking about new stories to tell and try out. Love to attend campfires and volunteer in classrooms often. A great place to entertain and experiment on themes.

Hope to be invited to your campfire one day...
Have fun and keep reading, dreaming, writing and hugging those you love most.

Reviews of Love...Is What You Do! by A. Foster

Edward E. Rochon reviewed on Sep. 20, 2019

Just finished reading your book of love poems. More of a prosaic storyteller, than poetry weaver? You favorited me, so I’ll dare a bit of advice and hope you will not think it a vice. If you do not love repetition, you do not love music and do not love poetry the way you should. Play on themes as song lyrics play back on the refrain written before. Weave a web and not always so obvious. Look for words and phrases that have two or several meanings, going off in diverse directions, sometimes in apparent contradiction. And don’t forget to rip off the bards from time to time. Great artists steal, though try not to get caught or accused of plagiarism. Regular meter and rhyme (end of line or alliteration) help make for a tight weave. Make a tapestry. #17 Love in Yellow played on a theme and played on a word (one of your better ones for me.) #20 The First Date played on a theme. It was also negative in emotional intent but with an abiding love for child to make it OK. #31 Empty Promise had that collage technique, that crazy quilt construction that Stevie Nicks uses in her lyrics (hard to know what she’s talking about, but a challenge to puzzle over.) I am sure that Sting, Stevie Nicks, Carole King, William Blake and T.S. Eliot would agree with at least some of this. Try to make a tapestry; write to some favorite music as a cadence? You seem very nice and would love to give you unconditional praise, but no can do. If you were twice your apparent age, my rating would be halved. But you love to write. As Sid Caesar once advised an audience I once was in, when asked how to be a good writer: write, just write. And maybe think about what you are doing well and not well?
Oh, Annette please spin a net
It’s the Web you see Worldwide
A. Foster? Far famed Jodie?
Alicia her name, see.
Was it the Prez threat muse call?
She, that men kill for with glee
Ah, a bit kinky agreed
Fear not, ‘tis no Hinckley seed
Planted here, just let it be.
If you chafe at criticism, remember that those who can, do, and those that cannot, teach. Well, not necessarily. After all, there is something called bad poetry. God bless!
