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 Wish
If I could but have one wish,
         You can be sure it would be this
That our love would long endure,
         That you'd be mine and I'd be yours.

But since this wish I cannot hold
         In days gone by when I am old,
I'll think of you and my thoughts will tower,
         Above the embers of my lonely hours.

                             Dedicated to A.K.

Circa 1940-1942
