Webster's Dictionary defines a poet as, “a person who writes or expresses himself with imaginative power and beauty of thought, language etc. “ That ability lies dormant in everyone but only manifests itself in some. Inside a poet there are always at least two distinct schools of thought which are always observing, pondering and expressing themselves. As can be seen in this collection of poetic thoughts the author describes both beauty and also the reality of the not so beautiful. The old cliche which says, “when life gives you lemons make lemonade” inspired the title and is woven into the themes of these poems. Beauty can be added to life with ones attitude just like the sugar that makes a bunch of bitter lemons taste like a sweet drink.
