“A good poetry book that fans of the genre will surely appreciate.” – Readers’ Favorite
Songs of Heartstrings: Poems of Gratitude and Beatitude by Miriam Hurdle is a collection of contemporary poems. In this collection, Miriam has written poems on a number of topics that cover different facets of life. The book is divided into broad categories such as Songs of Nature, Songs of Dissonance, Songs of Marriage, Songs of Parenthood, Songs of Physical Healing, Songs of Reflections, Songs of Challenge, Songs of Inspiration, etc. Each of these broad topics in turn covers various aspects of life under that theme and each poem is based around that subject matter. The poems are fairly short and usually run to a page or two.
I thought Songs of Heartstrings: Poems of Gratitude and Beatitude was a calming book in the sense that most of the poems tend to evoke feelings of nature or peacefulness. The poems cover routine aspects of life for most people and talk about human emotions and experiences in everyday lives. Hence, there is an emphasis on topics such as nature, parenthood, challenges in life, musings and reflections. I tended to like the poems in the Nature and Physical Healing section the most but this is simply a matter of personal preference. Some of my favorite poems include Light and Dark, Edible Garden, and Nature’s Gift of Green, among others. Miriam writes in a gentle, evocative voice and, as such, the poems probably have a universal appeal. I can see young adults and older people alike enjoying this collection.
