Edwina Reizer Poems
What Is Family?
A family is love That puts itself above Everything else in this world.
BEAUTY OF LIFE
I wonder as I look around at all the beauty that I've found. I've found it in the smallest places. I've found it in the smiles on faces.
The frightened ballerina, standing on her toes stood behind the curtain in a dainty pose.
A BALLAD FOR HELEN KELLER
How can I know what I can't see? It's never been a part of me. How can I know what I can't hear?
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
When the lion roars and makes himself heard all in the jungle shall listen As he stalks his prey from hunger he feels on his face his eyes do glisten.
Amelia, Amelia where did you go? They’ve searched and searched but still we don’t know. Oh the courage to fly in the air
LIAR, LIAR PANTS ON FIRE
Liar, liar we see the fire coming from your mouth each day. The fire that burns the truth as we struggle along our way,
ODE TO DREAMS
No one can see into my dreams and so they're mine alone. I travel places and meet old friends and some I've never known.
YOU'RE MY SUNSHINE
Sunshine, you're my sunshine and without you nothing's right. You warm me like the sunshine when I see you in my sight.
A BOY OR A MAN?
When does a boy become a man? Only when he understands that who he is has never changed. His priorities are just rearranged.
THE DEATH OF A TREE
When I see a tree cut down whose life was not yet done I look upon it with a frown and then look at the sun.
You want to have fear? Listen to what you hear emanating on sound waves approaching your ear.
Some drink to take away pain. Some eat and try to forget. Some think and try to just stay sane. Some cry big tears so wet.
Why is it that man looks great even with a bald pate? And a woman’s crowning glory usually has an early date
One face in a crowd is hard to find.
One face in that crowd is on my mind.
How can I find the face of one,
The face that to me is like the sun?
Shiny and bright with a radiant glow,
The face that picks me up when I'm low,
Eyes that light up wherever they are
Just like the splendor of an evening star,
