REVIEWS FROM SOME OF THE BUYERS AND WRITERS OF THE POETS SPEAK.
By Toni D Helfrick
“The Poets Speak: An Anthology” The Poets Speak is a very fine collection of poetry, either long or short form, and each one is unique from the other. An anthology does just that- it causes us to think differently, and each one is more inspirational than the others. I have given them to my daughters, and now they write poetry, and an appreciation of writing is most valuable for any would-be writer, who tries their hand at poems and even long ones. My own poetry has been greatly refined by the many poems I write. Everyone will find more than just one that pleases and teaches another. It is also an eye into the mind, as we each think differently. This is a fine collection of poetry, some funny, some serious, some revering nature, and some about sadness. All are a part of our lives, and we can all identify with many in this anthology. It is highly recommended.

“The Poets Speak” I am so sorry it took this long to get here to tell you how proud I am of you and all the rest of the poets that made this such a terrific book to own. With so many styles and well-written poetry, this is a poetry book that any collector would be proud to have. Billy, you made this possible and I pray that with enough sales there will be some money going to the charity of choice in Jeanette’s name. She must be beaming as she looks down on us all knowing that she was so loved and will never be forgotten. My love to you my brother!Deolinda

By mary Naylor
“Withered Flowers An Anthology” I feel honoured to be one of the poets in this talented group of writers. Withered Flowers makes me think of pressed flowers, like memories layered away in some quiet room of the mind. In this book, those memories awaken, and poets and readers join in a dance of poems.
