There is a place where love walks hand in hand
with poetry and melodies of song.
It is a sunlit stretch of golden sand
where only gentle hearts in love belong …
—Adonna Marie Gipe

Adonna Marie Gipe is a passionate poet whose writings reflect her love of God, nature, family and friends, the creative life, and the electrifying joy of loving others.

In a varied collection that shares many styles including sonnets, blank and free verse, rondeaus, villanelles, octograms, and rispettos, Gipe shares verse that marries love and heartache with nature and faith as words beam like sunlight through the trees, the crackling fire of laughter warms a soul, a heart wounded by life’s pain overflows with love’s warm touch, and a precious gift from God is wrapped up and sent from heaven.

In this collection of traditional love poems, a female poet shares reflections that inspire others to both accept and give love in a world that needs it more now than ever.
