Sep 21, 2009"Monumental Love" Collected Poems by +Steven Curtis Lance is literally a labour of love, for his wife Dr Silke Lance, herself a poet and artist. This book, better still treatise, is an amalgamation of two other sonnet works by Steven supplemented by new poems, or observations. The sonnet is an ancient and endearing form of poetry and has certain rules with respect to configuration. Steven is a master at the art of sonnet writing, perhaps exceeded only by the "bard" himself, William Shakespeare. This book and its contents are a masterpiece of poetic writings encased within a beautiful binding of enchanting cover drawings by Silke. You will find yourself with arms in the air reading out aloud without inhibition, on occasions. You will also find yourself warmly absorbing the love and dedication in a comfy chair by firelight. I can recommend this book without hesitation. This is a book to treasure.
Sep 13, 2009"Thank you..." Dear Steven... Today,I hold this book in my hands for the first time;and all I can say is Thank you,my Love. Thank god he sent you to me I thank God he sent you to me, For you and I were meant to be. We have a bond too strong to break, We have a love no one can take. In you, I have found a love so true, My heart is filled with love for you. Every time I talk to you, my heart skips a beat, You make my life whole, you make my life complete. My love for you grows more with each passing day, The thought of your gorgeous face takes my breath away Those brown eyes fill my soul with happiness, Those luscious lips I’d love to kiss. The day if I become your wife, Will be the happiest day of my life. Even thinking of that day makes me smile, I can't wait 'till I walk down that aisle. I dream of that day when we'll both say, "I do" For always and forever... I will love you.

May 23, 2008"Ride That Insane Carousel" Transcendental if you will I would rather thrill than kill Giving in or giving out But not giving up to doubt Drink no more and never smoke Live on apples and brown rice English tea and being nice Saving all my strength up for Writing books one two three four Brokenhearted and flat broke In the existential joke Which this life would seem to be Staving off insanity In oral and written test Anal and unwritten jest Absurdity suits me best Ride that insane carousel Up and out the mouth of hell Isis and Osiris know Things get pretty grim below Dark and deep mysterious Must we be so serious?
