The Cheeky Monkey Coffeehouse in Stroudsburg, PA presented Patty the Poet on Friday May 21st who read from her collection of poems found in her new book titled, “Patty’s Heartfelt Poetry.” The quick gentle verses lingered as each stanza was completed. Her voice proved to be an appropriate instrument as she recited one poem after another. This was deeply appreciated by a crowd of people who just wanted to hear poetry that made them smile along with some which gave them pause in order to contemplate some deep inner truths to enhance their lives.
