About This Author

Hi there!

I'm a grandmother, a nursing educator, an avid knitter and an aspiring writer. I created this page for family and friends who expressed interest in reading my writing. It is mostly poetry with a few short stories sprinkled here and there .

The poem on this page is one my Mom favored. The collectible trinket is from a needlework picture of Longfellow's home she completed. Mom loved poetry and was an avid reader. She and my brother,Rasputin , inspire me still.

I have a published form modification called the Rondel Grand Modified; it is located here:

Happy reading and write on!

My Dog Fluff
Picture of Mom with dog Fluffy

I had a little dog named Fluff,
         Whose wit I did adore,
The way he played was very rough
         A-rollin on the floor.

He always had a jolly grin
         His bark was ever ready
He had a black spot on his chin,
         And his blue eyes twinkled steady.

One day my Fluff was blue and sick,
         And his bark was out of order,
Even the clock refused to tick,
         We thought he'd go "South of The Border".

My dog Fluff was very good
         He never made me mad
He always on his hind legs stood,
         When he thought that I was sad.

Alas, this joy it did not last,
         For Fluffy passed away
The tears rolled down my face so fast
         I could never be glad and gay.

Dedicated to the best dog in the world.

Circa 1940
