As the Bird Sings is a collection of inspirational poems that will cause you to reflect, tug at your heartstrings, and ultimately touch your soul. In it, the author addresses the experiences of life that we all share--our feelings, our goals and dreams, our fears of illness and aging--and with her poetry manages to instill in us a fresh perspective and a renewed hope. Lovers of traditional rhyming verse will appreciate the almost musical cadence that the author, a former dancer and choreographer, injects into this collection of poetry. It is verse that will entice the reader to reread it often and commit to memory many of its passages. In the tradition of classical poetry, it delves into our innermost being, lays bare our concerns about life and living, and encourages the best that's within us.
