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!

A Goal
"There is no thrill in easy sailing,
When the skies are clear and blue,
There is no joy in merely doing,
Things that anyone can do.
But there is some satisfaction,
That is might sweet to take,
When you reach a destination,
You thought you'd never make."
~Excerpt from a poem by Edgar A. Guest


Girls when they went for a swim
Used to dress like Mother Hubbard
But now, they have a different whim,
And dress more like her cupboard.


At night when all her prayers are said,
And soft and swift she lays in bed,
She turns her head and looks at me,
And says, "Tonight I got in free".

Circa 1938-1942
