Amazon.com Review
Thorsten Kaye and Dorothy Bridges are perhaps better known inacting circles than literary ones; the classically trained Kaye hasappeared on both stage and television; Bridges is the widow of LloydBridges and the mother of Beau and Jeff--all well-known show-businessnames. Their collaboration on From Timber Ridge to DaymerGardens takes them far away from Hollywood, however. These 13poems are concerned mainly with matters of the heart. For both poets,memory is key. In "Portrait of my Husband at Malibu," Bridges iselegiac as she writes, "There sits my dream of love, my hero/The one Iwas young with." Kaye's memories, on the other hand, are lesstranquil--his are "dreams scratched into table tops/Across this Irishtown."

Bridges and Kaye aren't Yeats or Donne, but they don't pretend tobe. Both adhere to an old-fashioned, romantic style of poetry withstraightforward themes and rhyme schemes. From Timber Ridge toDaymer Gardens is perfect for readers who like their poetry sweet,unpretentious, and accessible. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A favorite CD
The poetry on this CD is gently evocative of meloncholy memories that most listeners can relate to.But it is the captivating voice of the reader, Thorsten Kaye, that invites many listening moments.

5-0 out of 5 stars a journey in words
I found this slim, delicate volume to be utterly enchanting. It is a lovely tribute to Mr. Bridges.
"A Journey in Words" is a fitting subtitle as there is strong physicality and a sense of specific locations in the poems while the journey of each one is in the mind and spirit. There is a delicate undercurrent throughout the book of the bittersweet passage of seasons and lives that draws the reader straight on through the journey of the volume.
I have always liked poetry that had rhythm and rhyme, grace and gentility and this volume provides that in abundance. They would be magnificent when read aloud.
Since reading it the first time, I have found myself coming back to many lines that echo in my head. One that touched me particularly -- "... in my soul I light a candle for all the words I didn't say." And I will probably always be haunted (no pun intended) by the line that ends all the stanzas of "Fall" by Thorsten Kaye, "Mum - there are ghosts after all."

1-0 out of 5 stars Shallow Poetry - Mediocre Presentation
Money would be better spent elsewhere. Though the poetry by Dorothy Bridges is a touching tribute to her husband, Kaye's poetry is lacking in depth and creativity. It is obvious that Kaye is a novice at the written word, as is also evidenced by the sparse number of poems included in the book. At many times during the brief read, I got the impression that Kaye simply forced himself to hammer out poems to get the "book" finished. Perhaps a longer time spent studying the genre, or adding more substance to both the poems and the volume would improve the book. The presentation of the book itself is equally as mediocre. Clearly, minimum standards were met in cover art, binding, and paper selection. If Kaye puts forth another poetic effort, one would hope that a more professional eye will be given to the packaging details of the book. I looked forward to reading the book, and am very disappointed to have to write a less than complimentary review.

4-0 out of 5 stars edition confusion
This is a nice little chapbook of poetry, though it suffers from poor book design choices, such as obvious word processor layout and paper with texture on one side only. Nevertheless, both poets offer sweet and vivid verses. A cautionary ordering note, however--there appears to be a second edition available elsewhere, with new material--but perplexingly issued with the same ISBN.

5-0 out of 5 stars Poems by Dorothy Bridges and Thorsten Kaye
From Timber Ridge to Daymer Gardens A Journey In Words

The fourteen selections in this book, poems written by Thorsten Kaye and Dorothy Bridges, are a blend and balance of light and dark, sadness and happiness,passion, tenderness, regret, and hope.

Visually, the slender volume withits leather string binding is very appealing, though the font style andprint size may encourage readers to reach for their reading glasses.

Whenreading the poems ofDorothy Bridges, the word "joy" comes tomind. Her gentle words ring with joy and celebrate life even as she dealswith loss and sorrow. She also evokes picturesque images of nature and itshealing effect on the human soul in "Spring" and "BlowingRain." "Sunday" is a thoughtful description a winter day'squiet reverie.

She pens a loving tribute to her late husband andcompanion of many years, Lloyd Bridges, to whom the book is dedicated."There sits my dream of love, my hero, /The one I was young with/There he sits in the sunset of our life," she writes in "Portraitof my Husband at Malibu."

There is a wonderful underlying rhythmin the straightforward structure of Thorsten Kaye's poetry, which thereader might expect from an actor who has interpreted the words of many ofthe world's finest writers.His narratives are introspective andinsightful.

Love in many forms is explored in "Thorns andRoses" and "28", which are strong, vivid compositionsexploring the depth, complexity and perplexity of a man's love for a woman,while "Mother Ocean" and "Hold Me" are filled withtenderness and longing.

Several of his poems, including "TimberRidge" and "Nodding Acquaintance" deal with the passing ofyouth and its ideals, and suggest that we are reading the words of a manwho is taking an inventory of his soul.In "Fall" he concludessimply, "Mum, there are ghosts after all."

In"Brothers" he views the shell of the old family home, now alterednearly beyond recognition, and recalls comfortable memories of familiarsounds and sights, as well as the people who once filled the home and itsnow-empty windows. He concludes that though the home and the playing fieldsdo not remember him, he will carry one possession with away him: "Icount me blessed for what I gained/The lifelong gift ofbrotherhood."

The accompanying CD, in which Mr. Kaye reads the poemsin the book, accompanied by an applealing variety of background music, isthe perfect companion to this lovely volume.Mr. Kaye is a classicallytrained actor with extensive stage experience, and his rich and memorablevoice gives added dimension to the words of both authors. ...
