Stones – just released!!
Stones is lyric poetry: Sensual refreshing, meditative, readable.


Dedicated to his loving wife and friend; this book is also dedicated to bringing you insights in delightful ways. Lynn wants above all else that each of you who pick up this book will find a little something more in yourself, a significant precious stone to pick up, admire, to celebrate and to share with others.


Lynn Ellsworth Taylor writes poetry that speaks to people. Audiences at Elliott Bay Book Store, and in Barnes and Noble poetry evenings, and in public libraries and universities, in coffee shops and restaurant venues around the country—all respond warmly with astonishment at how much they enjoy the readings, how approachable and understandable the poetry is, yet rich with language and imagery that challenge the most educated to stretch at some points.


Taylor has been writing and presenting his poems in public forums for more than four decades. His poems have appeared in newspapers, magazines, and poetry journals. He once won the humorous poem of the year award from the Washington State Poetry Association. You will find that poem in this collection.


Lynn’s mastery is not in the creation of a unique style of poem. He uses every known poetic formulation. He celebrates rhyme and rhythm, while also using blank verse and free verse.


In short his poems are written to be read out loud, one person reading to another, or one person reading audibly to himself. It is in the voicing of Lynn’s poetry that all of his music and sense and humor and delight in language, in sounds and in silences— his poems come alive.






There is refreshment in these poems of Lynn Ellsworth Taylor. He uses the five senses fully, concentrating on those appropriate to the moment, never improving the taste, touch and odor of real things. He is not a poet for the bloodless who stay indoors by choice.


Stones is lyric poetry: Sensual refreshing, meditative, readable. These are poems of coming home to one’s innermost self. Taylor’s poems beg to be read aloud. His humorous poems drive through to the intellect, charm the senses and tease the fixed thoughts in the brain. He makes me laugh out loud...

Mr. Clair Stairrett, Poet




Lynn evokes maturity and innocence to present these deliberately personal and language rich poems. Images abound, rich with wonder and delight at the natural forces of our common ground.


Stones is a wonderful book with a beautiful color cover illustrated by Bri¬gitte Runnalls. His poems are as sensual and difficult, as unforgiving and beautiful as nature itself.

Review of "Stones"
I am not always drawn to poetry. So wanting to review this book is for good reason. When I have read poetry in the past it attempts to draw a picture in my mind. To create a thought, a desire, or an emotion. Lynn's book Stones does not need to create anything in your mind. You actually experience it. It is real, sensual, practical, down to earth, even raw. I would discribed it as "fine Sushi of poetry".

Stones
Some of the best poems written in the english language since Frost and Whitman.

Moving but not sentimental, intelligent but highly approachable, deep but delightful and often humorous.
