A Gentle Haven of Rhymes and Verses
by Soleil

A Gentle Haven of Rhymes and Verses proves that love of poetry has no age limit. Specifically designed in two parts – one for young children and the young at heart and the other for older children and adult readers – this is a book that will grow with the reader and appeal to the whole family. Filled with poems about the magic of childhood, the love of family, nature, hope, dreams, and respect for diversity, this collection of verses entertains, moves, teaches, and inspires readers through the power of poetry.

As the poet Soleil notes, this book “aims to promote each individual's role in making this world a better place to live in – a gentle haven where love, kindness, compassion, caring, respect, gratitude, and self-esteem abound.”

Reading a book on poetry

Gives my heart so much glee.

A gentle haven for you and me

Is all I wish for all to see.

Poet Soleil calls herself an “accidental poet,” having just reconnected with poetry as a source of strength, hope, courage, and inspiration. The Education Assistant course she is taking up moved her to pen verses that emphasize respect for diversity and highlight the strength and beauty of the “gifted child,” her simple way of uplifting and affirming the loving mother behind and beside every such child. Some of her poems incorporate fond memories of her own childhood including that of her dog Moon chasing her family’s nameless pig around the yard while her loyal cat Bubbles watched. Family is also important to Soleil and a key theme in many of her verses and in the very design of this poetry collection. She says, “This is a book that honours the family as it illustrates many bonding activities between children and parents.” Soleil lives with her family in British Columbia, Canada.
