    While I of course and also quite naturally for me do not tend to all that much enjoy and have in fact never really liked L.M. Montgomery’s love poetry all that much (as well as those verses where Montgomery waxes away a bit too patriotically and sometimes even with a sense of distinct but for me also rather uncomfortable nationalism), she always most definitely and certainly does have a sweetly tender lyrical eye and delightful sense for nature and of course first and foremost for the sea (lyric While I of course and also quite naturally for me do not tend to all that much enjoy and have in fact never really liked L.M. Montgomery’s love poetry all that much (as well as those verses where Montgomery waxes away a bit too patriotically and sometimes even with a sense of distinct but for me also rather uncomfortable nationalism), she always most definitely and certainly does have a sweetly tender lyrical eye and delightful sense for nature and of course first and foremost for the sea (lyrical musings about nature’s seasonal magic, about flowers, trees and Prince Edward Island’s red roads and enchanting pathways and indeed the magical, enthralling call of the ocean, a passionate appreciation and love for its wildness, for its sense of mystery, for the sea’s siren song of yearning for places abroad, exotic and unknown). And thus, while some of the sections in Poetry of Lucy Maud Montgomery and some of editors presented and featured personal choices I have bien sûr not found all that much to my lyrical tastes (but which I have also totally expected as I have indeed never to date encountered a poet or a poetress where I have equally liked and appreciated all of his or her output, usually finding certain subjects and certain ways of lyrical expression not compatible with and to me both poetically and emotionally), I do as already mentioned above absolutely adore L.M. Montgomery’s ocean and nature themed verses and yes indeed with all my heart, with all my soul and being. Therefore and finally, I do most definitely majorly and highly recommend Poetry of Lucy Maud Montgomery even though that on a personal level, I certainly can and will only suggest the latter types of poems (Montgomery’s ocean and nature themed verses), because yes, L.M. Montgomery’s ocean, seasonal and nature themed poems, they are (they have been) totally magical and delightfully descriptive, absolutely evocative enough to make Poetry of Lucy Maud Montgomery truly special and wonderful (and for a rating of four solid stars, albeit that there is love, human interest and some political themed poetry included in Poetry of Lucy Maud Montgomery which thematics and content wise just are absolutely not really my thing and never will be to my poetic tastes).

    Many know of Lucy Maud Montgomery as the author of ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in November 30 1874 in Clifton, Prince Edward Island. The Introduction of this book gives some insight into her life and her writing of poetry and prose. The poems in THE POETRY OF LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY selected and introduced by John Ferns and Kevin McCabe were written to reach readers she thought of as "kindred spirits". THE MAYFLOWER'S MESSAGE, WHEN AUTUMN COMES, AFTER DROUGHT, and IN TWILIGHT Many know of Lucy Maud Montgomery as the author of ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. Lucy Maud Montgomery was born in November 30 1874 in Clifton, Prince Edward Island. The Introduction of this book gives some insight into her life and her writing of poetry and prose. The poems in THE POETRY OF LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY selected and introduced by John Ferns and Kevin McCabe were written to reach readers she thought of as "kindred spirits". THE MAYFLOWER'S MESSAGE, WHEN AUTUMN COMES, AFTER DROUGHT, and IN TWILIGHT FIELDS are my four favourite poems from Part 1: Poems of Nature. I like the message they tell and the way Lucy Maud Montgomery put the words together. Part II: Poems of Humanity had five poems that "tickled my fancy". THE APPLE-PICKING TIME brings back memories of apple-picking time in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia. There apple-picking starts in August and goes on until the apples are all picked, often as late as November. There are many varieties of apples grown - early, mid season and late. One autumn, needing money and wanting adventure, a friend and I decided to pick apples. We would start in the early morning hours and work at filling the bins until the sun went down. It was hard, but rewarding work and we appreciated being outside in the clean fresh air - not so much when it was rainy and cold. My favourite apples to eat are Ginger Gold, Burgundy, Cortland, Old Fashioned Gravensteins, Red Gravensteins, Jonagold and Northern Spy. Some prefer to buy the apples called Honeycrisp. The three poems COULD WE BUT KNOW, THE WORDS I DID NOT SAY, and THE LAND OF SOME DAY were in Part II, but under the subtitle Ethical Verse. They are poignant and very well written. THE GRUMBLE FAMILY seems familiar to me. It's a fun four stanza verse about those who complain and grumble. I enjoyed reading this book of poetry slowly and taking time to ponder over the poems. 4 stars ⭐️️⭐️️⭐️️⭐️️

    The first half of this books poetry was definitely a five but the second half of the book was only a four. Just such beautiful vivid imagery I loved it.

    Although Montgomery wrote hundreds of poems in her lifetime, this is a collection of just under a hundred. These make for an intriguing collection of poetry, grouped by subject matter. Her odes to feeling at one with nature are plentiful, and she really shines when tackling humanity in her ethical verse and reflections on childhood and youth. I'm glad I bought this book to satisfy my curiosity about Montgomery's poetry.

If you enjoy her prose, it's well worth tracking down her poetry. There's something in here for everyone.

    Amazing poems! Some beautifully describe nature's wonders and some have a great nostalgic tone to them. Her descriptions are as if you can see or feel what she portrays. Though You can never thoroughly finish a poetry book.... there's always something new to notice every time you read.... Amazing poems!

    Lucy Maud Montgomery has inspired me a lot. Her writings always make me content. Maud's poetry collection was something I coveted to read. When I finally got a kindle copy of it, I started reading it at once. Truthfully, the edition which I read(a public domain book) had very poor fonts. I will recommend not to choose it if you desire to read it, apart from this cons, the book will be a great read. LM Montgomery mostly wrote nature poems, painting both sombre and happy themes.

I will recommend not to choose it if you desire to read it, apart from this cons, the book will be a great read. LM Montgomery mostly wrote nature poems, painting both sombre and happy themes. I devoured all the contents of this poetry collection. I found some poems portraying the same themes but that wasn't a disadvantage as she wrote all of them in a different style. She also wrote different verses including french verse. There are hidden meanings which when discovered will surely touch your heart and you'll crave to read more of her passionate works.  Few of my favourites include: Fancies The Call of the Winds The Poet I Feel(this was a verse libre) Realization As the Heart Hopes Maud's writings will remain vibrant on my heart, forever. Being the victim of several uncertainties she continued writing as it helped her escape from her life's chaos. Her works were always the product of hard work, passion and love. She is an inspiration, indeed. ~Adrika

    I'm not a poetry fan so I am really not a great judge of this book. It does offer some insight into the darker side of the author. Her usual flights of fancy are in there too. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone and don't think that it will be in heavy rotation in my re-read pile. I'm not a poetry fan so I am really not a great judge of this book.

    "The Grumble Family" is my favorite. This is worth reading for several reasons, you'll find out why when you read it. "The Grumble Family" is my favorite. This is worth reading for several reasons, you'll find out why when you read it.

    I'm not and never have been a big poetry reader, so it doesn't surprise me that there were ups and downs. Plus, as the preface discusses so well, Montgomery's poetry itself varies in level. There were a couple that I really liked, a couple that missed the rhythm aspect of poems that I personally am extraordinarily attuned to and which drives me crazy when it's missed, and most of them were fine. Glad I read them, though. Another little glimpse into the life and art of one of my favorite authors.

    Lucy Maud Montgomery, while not the most polished poets, still grapples the human heart with her wordsmithery. I particularly feel her passion and niche is nature. She truly grasps the essence of the simple moments in life: an apple picking, a bird calling, the ocean waves. Most beautiful.

    ''On the last day of 1892, she wrote in her diary: '92 dies tonight - a glorious death, for the white earth floats in aerial silver to frost and moonshine and the sky is powdered with thousands of stars to watch its deathbed," ''On the last day of 1892, she wrote in her diary: '92 dies tonight - a glorious death, for the white earth floats in aerial silver to frost and moonshine and the sky is powdered with thousands of stars to watch its deathbed,"
