What inspires most poets and lyricists to write the most beautiful masterpieces of their times? Inspiration can come from anywhere, but the most powerful comes only from within; it is the most potent emotion only the heart inside us can give.

In Poetry from the Garden of My Heart, Phyllis Dootoff delves into the various facets of the most glorified theme in the world of poetry: love. Through her poems such as "As Only a Rose Can Give," "Memorizing You," and "Heart Full of Empty Love," Phyllis shares love in different forms and the different emotions felt by someone whose heart loves truly.
