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:

Drop me a note by clicking on the "Contact Me" link above and let me know you stopped to visit.

Happy reading and write on!

I've always wanted to take a trip
         To a far off sea orland,
I've always wanted to try to whip
         The World with just one hand

I'd like to visit Bombat
         Or go to Madrid, Spain
Or go on the road to Mandolay
         Or see where Ferdinand was slain.

I'd like to go to Russia,
         To see the Cossacks dance,
Or go see little Prussia,
         Or visit far-off France.

There are dozens of places I'd like to go,
         And things I'd like to see.
But I am just a wisher, so
         I'll stay in the "Land of The Free".

Circa 1938-1942
