In Words Of Comfort, E.D. Arrington’s first collection of poems and inspirational writings, she takes the opportunity to pay homage to all of our ancestors – the known and the unknown. Lest We Forget…Every Life Counts! emblazoned on a golden scroll on the last page sums up the theme that weaves its way throughout this body of work. “Every word,” Arrington says, “was written in tribute to people, all of whom I cherished. People whose names are famously known; people whose names, to most, are barely recognizable; and people who possibly never fathomed being placed in the spotlight of my life…a life that they each helped to shape into the person I am today. My only hope is that by some small measure I have made them proud.” (68 color pages. Soft cover only.)

In 2009, E.D. Arrington's Poem, "Ending Of A Similar Kind" won first place in the Story Institute of America's contest.
 

Reviews

…After I finished reading On The Edge, I started to read Words Of Comfort and quickly realized that it was the kind of book that I wanted to read very slowly because I wanted to capture, feel and connect to every word of the poetry. What is also so beautiful about Words Of Comfort is how the pictures equally speak the words of the poems. For me, looking at the pictures evoked about as much emotion.

I can't recommend this body of work more highly than by saying, I will read it again, and again, especially Words Of Comfort. There is a poem for every person of any age, any race, ethnicity or gender.

Finally, the "In Memory" and "After Words" is exceptionally done. Bravo! to the author.”

Heartfelt thanks for your beautiful book. Your poems establish a spiritual dialogue with the reader. Visually, the images float the message across the pages, showing the relationships between the words, images, and meaning. Words Of Comfort lives up to its name. Thank you so much!

Words Of Comfort: A Collection Of Poems And Inspirational Writings was just breathtaking. The pictures work so well with the poetry. And the poetry will touch everyone's heart of any age or gender. I just loved it.”

Edith Watkins, Washington, D.C.

Words Of Comfort is absolutely beautiful and touching. Although you addressed a specific gender in some of the poems, I discovered that in my 'heart of hearts', (people I know that are dear) they fit equally as well with either.

Its arrival for me was just perfect. I had just gotten a marker for my mother's grave and your words brought me a deal of comfort. I'm ordering another one to send to my best girlfriend in Philadelphia. Thank You!
