My books are all FREE through July 31st: DM Yates Smashwords

Today, I want to share with you two poems from my book of poetry, Stepping Stones to Love, Honour, and Respect.

Isn’t the cover beautiful? It’s another cover made for me by my talented and awesome friend, Joleene Naylor:

 

Joleene understood just what I wanted for my cover. I’d explained it from a dream I had. Thank you again, Joleene, for another amazing cover.

 

I love poetry. I always have. I was first influenced by ‘A Child’s Garden of Verses’ by Robert Louis Stevenson.  That book sent me on my way to writing poetry.

Poetry warms the soul and it certainly does mine.

Here’s a video I made where I recite two of my favorite poems from my book. If you’re interested in downloading, just click the smashwords link above. If you want to purchase the book (99cents for e-readers) just click on the button to the right.
