Item description for Sheets by Beverly Foote...

"These are documents of a luminous life, grateful and deeply felt."-Scott Cairns, author of Compass of Affection: Poems New & Selected "Settle in and read. These are not poems of escape, but of calm-a quiet with vast possibility."-Jay Paul, author of Going Home in Flood Time "Beverly Foote's work evokes the wit and wisdom of the Metaphysical Poets. Her vibrant imagery always surprises and delights. Take these lines, for example: Responding to Bach's music, she says, 'The cells in my brain/ begin to dance in their cerebral ballroom..' And 'Grandma, ' shed of her corset, rocks in her chair, while 'from her bureau drawers/ white hair nets are trying to escape.' John Donne would have approved."-Grace Simpson, former Poet Laureate of Virginia, author of Dancing the Bones Cover photograph by Laura van Assendelft Author photograph by Ty Brown Beverly Foote is a retired English and Latin teacher, having taught in Virginia Beach Public Schools and at Norfolk Academy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sheets?

Sheets Illuminates  Feb 16, 2009

This slim, elegant book by Beverly Foote has won the Best Christian Poetry Book award from Xulon Press. It deserves it. Ms. Foote's honest, calm, and musical voice takes the reader to an authentic and luminous place.
In the title poem, a load of lowly wash hung on the clothesline lofts in the wind and lifts our sights to a higher purpose.
Everyday events become moments of grace.
"Mooring," the final poem, begins:
"This morning my Lord
filled a whole tree
with birds,
lifted his baton,
and had them sing Beethoven's Ninth."

This book helps the reader to see the sacred in ordinary life.
