This one-of-a-kind notebook was created to share the heartwarming poetry of Valerie Creque Mawson, a Virgin Islander born in St. Thomas during the Danish times.
🌸 About the Poet 🌸
Sensitive and intelligent, Valerie was an avid reader as a child, and it was during her island girlhood that she began writing poetry.
Sometimes poems would come to her completely finished which amazed everyone.
Favorite themes throughout her life were the natural surroundings of her beloved islands, relationships with family members and devotions to her benevolent God by whom she felt guided and inspired.
She died in 2002, on St. John, with loved ones by her side.
Her daughters, who inherited her poems, are sharing them as notebooks to bring joy to others.
