About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

Poem #16 - The Summerland Awaits

Contrary to what you know
Things in heaven do not grow
They just appear
From far and near.

For it’s a world of thought
Sturdy things have we not.
But love it grows
Its face it shows
In every spirit’s eyes
It comes as a surprise
To those who arrive
To find they’re still alive.

Quite so!
You should know
That life’s forever after
Like the fairy tales you read
Happily we lead
You to these truths.

The Summerland they call it
For every day is bright and warm
And full of flowers
And all aware are they
Of God’s great powers

For it swirls around us from above
It’s pure, sweet love
That all can feel …
It’s real!
You can touch it if you like
Just go inside
There’s nowhere it can hide
That you can’t find it.

Love permeates all, here and there
If you would only dare
To hunt and seek
Take a peek
No need to wait
For your fate
The Summerland awaits.

But first live while you can
Your role in God’s plan
Learning to love
Learning to serve
All will come to you
When it’s due.

The greatest trials are here
You’ll find the worth
Here on earth
Then rise
To realize
The prize
You’ve earned
From lessons you’ve learned.

The poem ended here. I still felt the connection, so I decided to try to find out the answers to some questions I have. Highlighted words are mine that I wrote on the paper (eyes still closed). Italics are the answers that came to me (still in rhyme!)

Are you Silver Birch?

We bring you greetings from the one who called himself thus.
But it is us
Who carry on his work.

What names can I call you?

The Council … of Poets. (I immediately thought, Huh! I like it!)
Yes, it is good
To know it.
(I felt laughter and laughed, too, at their rhyme)

How many are you?

Many are we in number
Ne’er to slumber
For the work that’s planned
To bring to man
These messages of hope.

Why are the words the same as the book? (Three times now I’ve come across unusual wording from the poems in the Silver Birch books AFTER the poems are written – words I never would have used myself, ex: “never fear the morrow”, “baubles”, and “fog of the mind”)

We know what lies ahead
We take a look
Inside your book
The self-same truths we bring to you
In this our way
We say it, too
Read on – it’s good
These words to know
There’s far more yet,
A long way to go.
We’ll leave you not.
Come back and sit
There’s plenty more
No lack of wit.

We thank you for your time
We’re glad you like the rhyme
And we are all well pleased with you
With this, the sacred work you do.

(I catch myself thinking, “Am I really getting this from spirits?” and immediately hear:)

Yes, we’re here
Through day and night
With us nearby
No need for fright
We will protect you
Hold you close
Rest well,
You’re safe.

(Definitely no lack of wit!)


  1. UNELIEVBALE!!!! This is so exciting! This is a real breakthrough for you to actually know more about who is talking - The Council of Poets - that is sooo cool! And connected to Silver Birch too! Which of Silver Birch's books should I read?

  2. I love the sense of humor coming through in this session, as well as the magical feel of fantasy in "fairy tales" and "forever after" and "Summerland." Poem #16 is fun and meaningful. The serious theme of "things do not grow, but love grows" in the spirit world is strong and clear. The message continues to be "learn to love" and "learn to serve."

    The information that follows in this session is fascinating. "The Council of Poets" bring wit and reassurance in these messages of hope. (A day or two ago, I thought immediately of Shakespeare with the imagery "all the world's a stage.") It surely sounds as though there will be many more messages of hope to come! I can't wait to hear more about the Silver Birch connection.

    I get the feeling that the "council" really loves you, Suzanne, as do we all!

  3. I read, I try not to feel sad, not to feel the tears burning behind my eyes, I miss you already Ian, I love you. xxx
