New Poetry Collections Answers the Question: How Many Poems Should Be Included in a Poetry Collection?

Share Article

Author Juanita Alexandria Davis says, “The obstacle was coming up with enough poems to fill a book. I went on the Internet and asked how many poems should be in a poetry book and the answer was provided by a child who said, ‘As many as your heart can handle.’ ”

Juanita Alexandria Davis' "Reflections, Remorse, and Revelations"

Writing poetry is a hobby. In sports they call it ‘the love of the game.’

Juanita Davis' book Reflections, Remorse, and Revelations is not concentrated in any one area. It’s mainly light in content, especially in the beginning. But as the book proceeds, there’s a mix of silliness and seriousness, and the collection is appropriate for anyone, teenage and older.

Davis wrote her first poem 15 years ago. “I have been on self-imposed hiatus for the last few years. In May of 2012, it was time to come back to it to see if there was a place in the poetic world for me.” She explains, “Writing poetry is a hobby. In sports they call it ‘the love of the game.’ Everyone won’t be a superstar, but they still want to play.” Readers are invited to kick their heels back and relax, and keep reading until they've reached “as many as your heart can handle.”
