• Review — Mama Joy

    by  • June 15, 2011 • adult poetry, Reviews

    Motherhood does something to you and rearranges your life completely. Mama Joy is a collection of poetry from Eileen Silver-Lillywhite, as she speaks on the transition to womanhood and into motherhood. With a certain honesty of life, Mama Joy is a fine pick for down to earth and thoughtful poetry. “Coda”: Snap roses. Carry/them to the door. Kiss//your rising lover./Go down on the bed//by the window, roses flocking/across the hardwood.
