Stephen Gilligan, author of The Courage to Love, writes: “Dvorah shows a startling capacity and willingness to sink to the depths of darkness, open her heart to absorb some alchemical lead of the human psyche, and then give birth to a poem that transmutes it into the gold of fully human consciousness. For this we can all be grateful and encouraged.”

(2008) Softcover. 170 pp. 6 x 9 inches


Dvorah Simon was born to Hungarian Jewish parents. She was introduced to poetry by way of Milne and Christopher Robin; “The King’s Breakfast” was a particular favorite, especially as acted out with her mother and sister. She was also deeply moved by the rhythms and imaginative power of Hebrew liturgy, as well as the masterful poetry of Rilke, Neruda, Rumi, Ferlinghetti, and Oliver. When not writing poetry or cavorting with friends, Dvorah works as a clinical psychologist. Dvorah teaches Words Rise Up From Silence, a poetry-writing workshop focused on the sensual qualities of words. She is the author of Mercy, a poetry book that is a Nautilus Silver Medal winner.
