    This is Mark Walters. I read your poem, If there be no God. Very nice, I like the rhyme and two stanzas is a good length. I use the reference to eagles in my poem A sign of life because at times in Scripture God has been compared to a soaring eagle. Thanks,
    Mark Walters

    Hello Adeline:
    I did read Indebted. I liked it very much. It's cheeky, funny elegantly terse, with a nice rhyme scheme and structure.

    I feel honored that you left me a comment, and invited me to read one of yours. I think your poems must be like Lay's Potato Chips. A person is not satisfied with just one.

    Adeline, Thanks so much for you kind comments. The next best thing to writing poetry is having someone else enjoy your poems. I had not come across your work before but I am happy to have found your poetry. The quality of your poems is striking and the skill with which they were written is obvious. I read about 15 of them this morning and enjoyed all of them. I will keep you on my list to continue reading. Thanks again,
    Dick Lackman

    Dear Adeline, I was reading your bio and noticed that you lived in New Brunswick? I have some family living there as well. Another coincidence is that I spent my formative years in Rockville MD! I went to Rockville high school & Montgomery College! I now live on Cape Cod. Your poetry is marvelous. I especially enjoyed your poem about cats. You are a writer!

Best Poem of Adeline Foster

~if There Be No God

~ If There Be No God

If there be no God,
Then all the stars, that in their place
Have aeons roamed abroad,
Would long ago have lost the trace
Of orbits-if there be no God.

If there be no God,
Then justice in the heart of man
Would be a fake-a senseless fraud;
Each for himself alone would stand-
No honor-if there be no God.

Read the full of ~if There Be No God

Makeshift Education


Native Americans of old-
At least in this we have been told-
Would fling their children to the sea
And hope that they would swim and be
As safe on water as on land.

The Greeks- I have heard talk-
