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!

When Our Work Is Done
When day is done and shadows fall,
         Slowly home we walk,
When the breezes blow and the owl calls,
         Silently we talk.

Our work is done, now we can rest
         And pass the hours by,
We've done our work and passed the test
         And now we end our sigh.

And when we leave this grand old place,
         And go to fairer lands,
We shall go with happy face,
         Into happier and dearer hands.

For our work is done and we need not worry
         He'll accept us with a smile
We did nothing to be sorry
         We'll welcome our last mile.

Circa 1938-1942
