Throughout time, many poems of love have been written by a variety of poets. Shades of Love, Poetic Moments is a volume of poetry concerning the many aspects of love and its profound effects on life. There are life events chronicled from the realization of love to the end of a love relationship and various points in between.
The table of contents is prefaced by several profound quotes by the author as well as a poem written by another individual. The main body of the book consists of 30 poems, each prefaced by another quote by Mr. Lewis. From the first poem, Fountain of Love, to the last poem, No Tomorrow, the reader takes a thought-provoking journey of self-discovery and enlightenment.
These poems express many different types of love in an effective manner. A Mother's Love extols that felt by a well-loved child who has grown into a well-adjusted adult. Love Be So Warm compares the experience of love to nature and the autumn season. Love Surrender evokes the emotion of sadness as it describes someone who feels lonely and unloved. When You Least Expect It discusses the wonders of falling in love. From the Heart of a Man expresses the emotions that many men are reluctant to reveal. A True Friend is about the importance of helping a friend in need.
Evaluating a volume of poetry can be an intimidating task as poetry is often very personal. Mr. Lewis has presented a variety of poetry here that is sure to have something for everyone. The poems are well written and thought provoking. I recommend Shades of Love, Poetic Moments to anyone who enjoys reading poetry for it is sure to touch the hearts of many readers as it did mine.
