Item description for The Last Time We Were Children by Penny J. Johnson...
Through poetry, Penny J. Johnson explores memories from childhood like this one in ?Chicken a la King.? But The Last Time We Were Children is more than remembering. Her poems describe descending sledding hills, climbing mountains, and playing in fields and fairgrounds. They also profoundly cast light?both with humor and serious faith?on the dark hours of staying up with a sick child and sitting in the ER with an aging loved one. The pages speak of joy in first kisses, last words, and hearing the words of an autistic child. Those who read this book will be reminded how childlike faith and wishes grow into adult conviction and hope.

More like 3.5 stars Jul 16, 2008
I prefer novels to poetry, but this book of poems had some poignant prose that made me stop and think about the meaning. Like the Psalms, there is a story within the lines. This book was divided into four parts, like "themes." I particularly enjoyed parts 2-4. My favorite poems were Offering, Matins, and Adjusting the Darkness. If you enjoy poetry that includes family, faith, and memories, you'll enjoy this collection of poems by Penny J. Johnson.
I liked it - and it didn't even rhyme! Sep 12, 2007
I found this little collection to be insightful and entertaining. It brought forth vivid images of childhood, and evoked warm emotional memories, especially of chicken a' la king in my mom's kitchen. Johnson gives an intimate glimpse into the pain and joy of being a wife and mother.
