Sara M. Robinson included poems about growing up in the small town, Elkton, Virginia in her earlier anthology Two Little Girls in a Wading Pool. In Stones for Words she once again featured poems about growing up in that town, particularly in the poems titled Marshall Avenue with a season in 1954; "The Weightiness of Dreams;” "Just This Once, Another Once," and "Another Poem about Time," all of which I found especially enjoyable. Having lived in Charlottesville, Virginia, for over twenty-five years, I also particularly enjoyed poems with references to Charlottesville and its surrounding area including "Pieces of String Too Short to Save," and "Small Hotel by a Sea," The whole section of love poems, "What I Will Tell You" were my other favorites in this collection. Sara’s poems flow very nicely. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0989146537, Paperback)

In Stones for Words, Sara Robinson takes the reader through five distinct levels of an evolutionary journey of her writing and philosophy of life. Like the stratification of the earth s mantle, her personal development is in layers of hard and soft rock, which she must mine for definition and clarity. She is not afraid or reluctant to involve the reader in the intimacy of her thoughts and self-doubts. Using simple, but powerful imagery, mixed with abundant use of metaphor and simile, she presents her observations and attempts at logical conclusions. In some poems there is a sense of inner debate about what is true and what is not; but at the end she either accepts what she sees or leaves the thought for future imagination. As with Sara s first collection of poetry, Two Little Girls in a Wading Pool (Cedar Creek Publishing, 2013), her poetic quest for identity is still influenced by the emotional ties to where and how she grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
