A 1953 Christmas Gift from Sister to Sister

Readers of Dark Tigers: The Poetry of Bonnie Elizabeth Parker are enjoying something special today, an opportunity to look at an anthology handmade by the author herself as a gift for my mother. You can see it by clicking the book cover below:

I am so awed by Bonnie's poetry. She was such a talent. Thanks for sharing her with us!

Thanks, Jasia. I'm really enjoying posting one of her poems each day. I'm awed every morning! As a poet, she drew heavily from her own life experiences to illuminate all the passions and emotions of being a woman, so in a way the poems are her life story (and sometimes uncannily prescient!). By the end of the year, her story will be told. The only thing that might be missing is her bubbly, larger-than-life presence that would change the whole atmosphere when she walked in the door. It was always fun when she came to visit!
