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!

The Home
First they dug a great big hole, as deep
         as it should be,
Then they put the cellar in, which
         looked so quaint to me.
Next they built the bottom of that
         funny little house,
Which grew up like a giant from
         a tiny little mouse.
Soon it grew taller and it finally
         reached its height
Covered over with the roof that
         sprang up overnight
Last came the finishing job, a touch
         here and there,
From which emerged a bungalow,
         sweet and rare,
Then came three people, happy and
To live in the house that sprang
         up overnight.
These same people, who make
         up this poem
Happily changed this little house
         into a lovely home.

Circa 1941
