What people are saying about Elise’s poetry:
Warm and accessible, Ms. Skidmore’s poetry shines. Her love of the simple things, of home and family, evokes memories and feelings common to us all, and her sure hand strokes the iron string that runs through every heart. Kudos.
—Dale Cramer, award winning author of KISS OF THE JEWEL BIRD
If you love poetry, When Leaves Fall will fill a new corner of your heart. If you think you don’t like poetry, its achingly simple beauty will prove you wrong.
—Linda Grimes, author of Tor Books’ Ciel Halligan series
Poignant and lyrical, every sentence is a gem.
—Karen White, NYT bestselling author
Poets are dreamers by nature, but having three books of my poetry and photographs published over the past five years is more than I ever dared to dream. TRIO is a digital compilation of those books: Poems From the Edge of Spring, When Leaves Fall, and A Dance of Dreams.
If you've been a long time fan, then you won't find anything new here, only the books you already know and love in one place. However, if you're new to my work this is an excellent way to get all three books at a bargain price. (And who doesn't love a bargain?) If you're someone who waited to buy the paperback versions first, you might want to include TRIO to your digital collection so you can always have it handy when you have a few minutes for quiet reflection. It also makes a wonderful gift.
Whatever your reasons, I thank you for your support. Every life needs some poetry in it.
Elise has such a way with telling stories. Whether the poem is long or short, you will always find a human story that you will be sure to relate to. She tells her stories in language that is easygoing and natural. Her words will capture your heart and keep you reading. You will get caught up in every single story that Elise has to tell.
